Someone once said, “Any beer is a holiday beer if you drink it during the holidays.” There is truth to that. There are also some very special seasonal beers that pop up for the holidays.
Equinox Brewing Midwinter Warmer Barleywine
A complex aroma blends caramel malt notes with hints of wood and dried fruit. Full rich malt dominates the flavor and slowly opens as the beer warms. The oak presence lingers in the finish. Mellow tannins balance the malt while the alcoholic strength becomes apparent.
ABV: 10% | IBU: 55 | Release Date: 9/30/2010
High Hops Brewery Double Stuph Cookie Porter
Collaboration with Western Distributing Co
Available in cans & on draft 12/1
Porter Brewed with Chocolate, Vanilla, and Lactose
A delicious porter with flavors reminiscent of the well-known tasty treat! Brewed with biscuit and special caramel malts to bring out a palate-warming gooey mouthfeel and chocolate malts to mimic the sweet morsels of a cookie. ABV 6.5%
Let’s call this adult milk and cookies.
Odell Brewing Isolation Ale
Pale, Bon lander, Crystal and Nugget hops
A funny thing happens here around summer’s end—our eyes start searching the skies for those first fall flakes. As we welcome autumn’s first snow, we celebrate the return of Isolation Ale—a sweet-caramel malty ale balanced by a subtle crisp hop finish. Whether you ski, shred, or shoe, it’ll inspire you to make first tracks.
Available October through December. Let’s call this comfort.
Gift of Time-Black Friday Edition
Imperial Stout Aged in Heaven Hill & Envy Bourbon Barrels for Three Years. Sells out quickly. Let’s call this one time only, exclusive.
A soft sour with Colorado Sage, angelica root, French Verveine is some of the remnants from the Old Elk gin leftover from the barrel. As the liquid continued to age, the Purposeful art of beer-making took over. Some of those spices are there but it is pleasantly surprising. Let’s call this creative.
