Holiday Cheer and Holiday Beer
Written By: Christina Fleming
Celebrate the Holiday with the cheer of beer! Winter warmers are a popular choice for a holiday seasonal. They are delicious brews that offer a sweet malty sensation with a hop bitterness level that is generally low. In some brews these characteristics may be more pronounced, but generally winter warmers are known for their prominent malty flavors. The color range varies from a brownish red to nearly pitch black, and the alcohol by volume (abv) can be anywhere from 5.5-8.0%.
Some delicious winter warmers to try are Highland Cold Mountain Winter ale, Hitachino Nest Celebration Ale, Great Lakes Christmas Ale, Fat Head’s Happy Holidays Christmas Ale, Sweetwater Festive Ale, Anderson Valley’s Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale and Widmer’s Brrr!
