Smuttynose Winter Ale
This New Hampshire-based brewery rolls out this rich, fruity beer annually. Brewed with a rare Trappist ale yeast, this chocolatey brew is reminiscent of sweet, dark fruits. Think prunes and dates. Score some for a cozy night in.

In addition to being so dang adorable, this double-hopped red ale has a strong, piney appeal. Apparently the big man likes his beer hoppy, citrusy and bitter, to boot.

Blue Point Winter Ale
This Long Island-born amber ale is made with the following malts: pale Vienna, crystal and chocolate. The combo creates a hearty, caramel taste. It offers 7% ABV, so it packs a little more of a punch than some of its brethren. Perfect for that winter chill (from the AC, natch).

Most of the above beers were purchased at Stop N Shop, ;5885 Ponce de Leon Blvd in Coral Gables. Other fine beer retailers are listed below. Tis the season to be merry, so get to drinking already.
