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.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
