We know, we know; we’re always just a few steps ahead of the weather, anticipating its next move and making sure there are enough seasonal-appropriate beers for you to enjoy. And now that it’s mid-October, we’re thinking winter seasonals. YUM!
We really like beer, almost any beer, but wanted to share a few of our favorite winter seasonals with you. Now, close your eyes and imagine yourself in front of a roaring fire, drying off after a long day on the slopes. THAT’S how we feel each time we sip these delicious winter beers.
Magic Hat never disappoints with their seasonal brews and this year is no different. Their new winter seasonal is Snow Roller, a hoppy brown ale that is a perfect combination of hoppy, bitter, and malty. Our mouths are watering just thinking about it! You’ll be able to pick up this delicious beer at most bars, restaurants, and stores throughout Vermont.
Otter Creek’s winter seasonal is a favorite with almost any beer drinker. They describe it as, “A big, unfiltered American IPA built to accompany the big Eastern Winter. Just like an epic bluebird day follows a snow storm, a peppery build from the Rye-malt accompanies glorious hop notes of pine, citrus and fresh grass.” I don’t think we could ever explain it better than that. You can find the Otter Creek Kind Ryed at your favorite bars and stores throughout Vermont.
Sam Adams Winter Lager is a bold, rich brew made with orange peel, ginger, and cinnamon, adding a slight hint of spice to it. A definite go-to for any occasion, as long as there is a little snow on the ground. You can find Sam Adams Winter Lager at almost any bar or store in Vermont.
Shiner, a Texas Brewery that has recently found a sweet spot in Vermonter’s hearts (and stomachs), has a popular winter seasonal called Holiday Cheer. Brewed with Texas peaches and pecans, caramelized malts and a lot of love, this holiday dunkelweizen is sure to hit home with us snow-crazy beer enthusiasts. You can find Holiday Cheer at select bars and stores throughout Vermont.
