Celebrate the season with these spiced winter warmers.
Alaskan Winter Ale
Alaskan takes a different approach to spicing up its winter ale: Sitka spruce tips. This old ale’s toffee-biscuit malts soak up the spruce, lending floral, woodsy flavors to this belly-warming brew.
Thirsty Dog 12 Dogs of Christmas Ale
This multi-dimensional brew starts with creamy, sweet caramel and layers on seasonal flavors like honey, cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.
St. Louis Schlafly Christmas Ale
Every winter Schlafly dresses up its amber ale with a pleasant dose of orange peel and clove. The result is a vibrant, spicy take on a malt-forward brew.
Bison Gingerbread Ale
This seasonal porter tricks the senses with a few dashes of ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon; you’ll swear you just beheaded a gingerbread man.
Jerome Nochebuena Ale
Thick caramel malts sink into the taste buds with hints of clove, floral hops and spicy pepper; add to that a hot alcohol kick and this beer’s a flavorful match for long, snowy nights.
Anderson Valley Winter Solstice
A total 180 from the brewery’s light, crisp Summer Solstice, this brew lays down thick, caramel-doused bread flavors sprinkled with nutmeg and cinnamon.
