Winter ales and lagers are typically brewed stronger and are usually richer and fuller of body.  These beers are normally enjoyed on cold, clear winter nights beside a toasty fire.   Below are just some of the brews we’ll be distributing this winter — just in time for the holidays.  For all of the seasonal beers we distribute, see our full product list at

Snow Day Logo

New Belgium Snow Day

Pleasantly hoppy, Snow Day carries the subtle chocolate and caramel flavors of a new brewing malt known as Midnight Wheat. The Styrian Golding, Centennial and Cascade hops bring the backbone of hoppy bitterness to complement the roasty undertones. This beer is the deep garnet of a roasted walnut and presents a creamy tan head, floating artfully atop. Snow Day is bold and hoppy, drinkable and strong.

Sam Adams Winter Logo

Sam Adams Winter Lager

The first thing one notices about a Samuel Adams® Winter Lager is the deep ruby color. Then comes the magical aroma which promises something special on the tongue. The cinnamon, ginger, and hint of citrus from the orange peel blend with the roasty sweetness of the malts to deliver a warming, spicy flavor. Winter Lager is rich and full bodied, robust and warming, a wonderful way to enjoy the cold evenings that come with the season.  ABV: 5.6%  IBUs: 22  FIND IT!
