The approaching cold months have inspired countless styles and new interpretations of what winter beers can be. Winter and Christmas Beers are often created with artful malt or hops’ combinations for complexity. But, today there are no rules for how they should be brewed!
Christmas Beers – lean toward the spice or dried fruit flavors.
Winter Beers – rarely made with adjuncts, or a non-malt source of fermentable sugar intended to add flavor, better foam retention, or nutritional value or additives – i.e. grains, spices, fruit, etcetera.
Both – high alcohol content and usually available from November through February!
