The cold and the snow and the general sense of being stuck inside can be something of a challenge. Luckily, there’s beer. And, even better, there is delicious beer that goes really well with wintry feelings. Check out a few of our favorite winter brews now in stock!

(Plus, our Front End Supervisor, Jill, approves of them all!)

NEW & LOCAL: Glacial Grind Coffee Porter, Wagner Valley Brewing Company (Lodi, NY)

“A real eye opener, Glacial Grind Coffee Porter, is a robust European style porter that has traditional dry chocolate & toasted notes with subtle maltiness. It blends elegantly with the natural rich smoothness of specialty selected locally roasted coffee. Using a New Orleans style cold extraction technique enabled us to introduce an excellent coffee characteristic with a lot of depth and a subtle fruitiness. This locally roasted coffee perfectly accents & complements the aroma & finish of this beer leaving a pleasant lingering coffee flavor.” –

Vanilla Java Porter, Atwater Brewing (Detroit, MI)

“A robust Porter made with chocolate malt. This malt Beverage is brewed with coffee beans with Natural Flavor added (Vanilla Extract), and balanced with U.S. Golding Hops.” –

Andromeda IPA, Galaxy Brewing (Binghamton, NY)

“Hoppy, citrusy, with notes of passion fruit and other tropical fruits. An East Coast style India Pale Ale that is smooth and well balanced, with an intense hop aroma and an emphasis on hop taste, combined with a moderate bitterness.  ABV 6.7%, IBUs 58.” – from the Galaxy Brewing website

Boomsauce IPA, Lord Hobo Brewing Company (Woburn, MA)

“It pours a clear copper colour with two fingers of foam and an above average level of carbonation for the style. The aroma is full of caramel sweet doughy malt, grapefruit citrus and a plethora of passion fruit, gooseberry, lychee, and strawberry notes.” –

Two Hearted Ale, Bell’s Brewery Inc. (Comstock, MI)

“An India Pale Ale style well suited for adventurous trips to the Upper Peninsula. American malts and enormous hop additions give this beer a crisp finish and an incredibly floral aroma.” –
