It’s again that time of the year where cold wind blows and all you want to do is get in warm clothes and snuggle up on your couch in front of the fireplace with a glass of your favorite beer. With Christmas and gifts giving season, what is more ideal than to present your loved ones with one of the top 5 Christmas beers this season which is sure to warm their hearts as well as their bodies in the winter!
Leinenkugel’s Fireside Nut Brown: It has a nice amber color with a smoky scent and a sweet malty falvor with just a hint of vanilla. It has a well balance flavor. English two-row malts give this lager a maple aroma and pronounced caramel finishes that play around the palate before finishing off nicely.
Sierra Nevada 2008 Celebration Ale: Made by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in Chico, CA, Celebration Ale has a pleasant 6.8% alcohol content providing that pleasant warming sensation that we’re all looking for in a winter warmer. It’s a pleasantly fresh hoppy IPA, with a bit of malty sweetness and just a tiny touch of Christmas winter spices. You would find the ale to have citrus American hops in a toasty background of caramel malt. San Francisco Chronicle calls it the best beer ever made in America
Troegs The Mad Elf Ale: The Mad Elf Ale is definitely a winter warmer and spicier beer with the high alcohol content of 11%. It shines with a bright red ruby color and is balanced with fantastic flavors. The ale is brewed with cherries and honey giving it a diminutive flavor of tasty bread and dried fruits from the chocolate malts. The ale is brewed by Troegs Brewing Company in Harrisburg, Pa.
Anchor Our Special Ale: There’s no beer that tastes more like Christmas than Anchor’s winter warmer. The beer is an incredible mix of spicy gingerbread, cinnamon, nutmeg and pine, though the beer’s recipe changes every year. The brewers at Anchor have been making this beer since 1975, and like the beer’s recipe, the tree on the label changes every year.
Deschutes Jubelale: The beer has the flavors of dark caramel, raisins, pine and cocoa that makes this cold chilly winter season a little warmer and is also a gift worth savoring. The main attraction of Jubelale is the label which keeps changing every year to reflect the season’s festive mood.
