Winter Beers You Need to Try
Nothing tastes better on cold winter nights than some craft beer fresh from the tap. Leave the light, fruity kinds behind with summer. As we get deeper into winter, it’s time for the heavy, darker beers to take center stage. So, as you relax around the dinner table, try out some of these winter beers to keep your spirits bright.
Victory Winter Cheers
This wheat ale by Victory Brewing Company is a perfect brew to bring warmth and hops in the cold winter season. It lives up to its festive name, Winter Cheers, with hops made from whole flower Tettnang and Citra. Mixed with German wheat and barley malts and oats, the fruity and spicy notes are sure to make you smile. It has a light body with a crisp finish. You can taste hints of banana, clove, and citrus. This delicious beer pairs well with cheese and seafood dishes.
Heavy Seas Winter Storm
Heavy Seas Beer is a brewing company based in Arlington, Virginia that specializes in bold flavor. Their Winter Strom brew is a perfect cold weather ale. Usually only available until December, we still have it on our beer menu. So, come in and try it while it lasts! The beer tastes nutty and earthy. This is known for its bitterness because of the mix of darker malts. Don’t let that deter you. Try this with steak or BBQ to really bring out the flavors.
Flying Dog K-9 Winter Ale
Formally known as K-9 Cruiser Winter Ale, this beer changes slightly year-to-year. Even with the every changing mixtures, you can still count on the caramel malt presence. There is also a subtle spice to this brew, which can warm up even the coldest days. This English Ale is great with hearty holiday meals. It is said if it “tastes like the Christmas” then this is the beer to pair it with. Think stews, yams, spiced cakes, etc.
Breckenridge Avalanche Amber Ale
Made in Colorado, this is a classic American brew you need to try. With blends of pale, chocolate, and caramel malts, the beer is flavorful and well-rounded. With wisps of both sweetness and bitterness, you will be surprised by the clean finish. They even have a Spiced Avalanche Beer Jelly you can make.
