In a nod to two things that normally go together about as well as pickles and hot fudge -- ingenuity and alcohol -- employees at the Genesee brewery in Rochester, New York made a Christmas tree out of kegs.

The tree is made of 300 kegs standing some 23 feet tall. If you've helped yourself to some of the refreshing beer and want to get to the top, may we suggest a designated climber?
