Five beers to keep your holiday season going

Five beers to keep your holiday season going

Christmas is over, but holiday beers are still around! These five brews are perfect for a cozy night in at home by the fire or a night out with friends.

  1. Sierra Nevada Celebration (6.8% ABV) –  First brewed in 1981, Celebration Ale is one of the earliest examples of an American-style IPA and one of the few hop-forward holiday beers. Famous for its intense citrus and pine aromas, Celebration is bold and intense, featuring Cascade, Centennial and Chinook hops
  2. Blue Moon Mountain Abbey Ale (5.6% ABV) – Blue Moons crafts this winter wonder with roasted malts and dark. Belgian candi sugar for rich caramel and toffee notes. It’s perfect on those winter days when you’re stuck inside.
  3. Samuel Adams Merry Maker (9% ABV) – This brew is a rich dark gingerbread stout that entices with the aromas of the holidays. The flavor of gingerbread comes alive, beginning with the smooth sweetness and heartiness of dark roasted malts and a touch of wheat. But it’s the intensity and spices of cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, & ginger that add a wicked kick for a jolly playful brew full of merry mischief.
  4. Leinenkugel’s Snowdrift Vanilla Porter (6% ABV) – A fuller-bodied brew, Snowdrift Porter, has hints of cocoa, coffee and caramel brought out by roasted malts and aged on real vanilla, our Leinenkugel’s® Snowdrift Vanilla Porter® is smooth and creamy, making it ideal for winter.
  5. Shiner Holiday Cheer (5.4% ABV) – This holiday Dunkelweizen practically unwraps itself with hints of Texas peaches and pecans. Caramelized malts give it a uniquely rich malt body that’s perfect for the holidays.
