Anchor Brewing Co. – Holiday Ale

The 2009 Anchor Winter Ale is a warm full winter ale weighing in at 5.5% ABV. This absolutely delicious concoction is filled with holiday spice. Not very hoppy, just a little sweet, and extraordinarily smooth with a deep molasses color. I would highly recommend this one, though coming all the way from San Fransisco makes it a bit expensive. $9.50 for a Six pack – Well worth the price.

A freshly poured, delicious, winter ale.

Goose Island – Mild Winter

Another fantastic beer from Goose Island. This was a toffee colored, full bodied beer with a great head. Sweet and spicy and strong; A sure choice for keeping you warm on a cold winter’s night.

Unfortunately for you, I had this one at a resturaunt and have no picture of the label. And on that note, we got fantastic service at the Ames branch of Old Chicago tonight hats of to Tammy for earning a good tip tonight!

Dogfish Head – 60 Minute IPA

For the first beer I’d like to introduce you all to the Dogfish Head brewery. Their 60 Minute IPA is a hoppy light beer with hints of citrus. An all around great beer with about 6% ABV (alcohol by volume) and very cheap. I purchased this 6 pack for just over 6 dollars after tax and deposit. If your fond of India Pale Ales this one is for you.

Also I’d like to invite anyone to create an account and post comments that further the discussion. Questions are welcome and I can be contacted using the contact tab at the top of the page.
