Sean Suggests for December 2014

header_beer_shopping_listThis year, my suggestions are for beers to bring over and share on Christmas Day.  And that doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to be a barrel-aged imperial stout.  You don’t want to be blotto before you fish the last gift out of the stocking do you?


Anchor Brewing/ Winter Wheat 7.00% ABV

“Anchor Winter Wheat is made with a unique blend of malted barley and five wheats from Belgium, Germany, the Midwest, and a family farm just 75 miles away, where we get our soft red winter wheat.”


Cascade/ Gose 7.50% ABV

“This NW style sour ale is a re-creation of a historic German beer style, spiced with coriander and sea salt to replicate the water in the town of Goslar where the beer originated.”


Brasserie DupontAvec les bons Vœux de la brasserie Dupont 9.50% ABV

“A coppery blond beer with aromas of hops for the Bon Voeux is a beer tasting combining mellow bitterness and fruity. Our selection of yeasts and a long maturation phase with hopping gives it flavor and a characteristic and complex taste. The true fermentation in the bottle , which can be extended very long in your cellar, resulting in a balanced and harmonious beer, surprising and complex aromas .”
