Five Winter Beers For Your Christmas Feast
As if there weren't already enough reasons to look forward to the holidays (vacation time; copious amounts of food; presents) - seasonal beers add an extra bit of holiday cheer. (In part thanks to a healthy buzz they inspire, but we digress.)
Since we're such huge beer lovers here at Short Order (did you see the aftermath of our holiday potluck?), we thought we'd pick out a few winter selections for the upcoming festivities. Buy one of each or a whole case. Put 'em under the tree or drink 'em with dinner. They'll add to your seasonal spirit - guaranteed.
Newcastle Winter IPA
Based on the original IPA recipes of the 1700s, this medium bodied beer is less bitter and more friendly than some of its counterparts. Creamy, with hints of cinnamon and caramel, it might not present like an IPA -- but it is crisp and cheerful. What more do you need for a cold (or hot) winter's night?
Shiner Holiday Cheer
Hailing from the Lone Star state, this beer is made with homegrown peaches and roasted pecans, and peachy it is. Heavy on the fruit with a malty aftertaste, it's not your typical winter beer. But it sure is cheerful.
