Winter Warmers for the Holidays!

24 Dec



Happy Holidays!

Now that the shopping is done I hope you take some time to kick back and enjoy quality time with your family and friends. Personally, I like to relax with a blanket, a comfy chair, a warm crackling fire and a nice bottle of beer. This time of year we have the pleasure of enjoying some bolder brews that please the palate with more robust flavours. I’ve listed a few of my favourite winter warmers and what I love about these brews are the extra malts which add chocolate, toffee & nutty notes to the beer. These gems have a richer, bolder taste and the alcohol adds a nice heat to the beer bringing you just the right amount of warmth to the finish. You can find one out of the three beers listed below at the LCBO. Unfortunately, Uncommon Brewer’s Baltic Porter and Junction Craft are currently not available at the LCBO…but they will be!

I suggest having some cheese with these brews. SHe’s Choice:  Blue Haze on a ginger snap.!

To add a touch of class to your tasting experience, serve the following beers in a stemmed glass.

Junction Craft Brewing’s Stout & Porter – please visit the Tap Room at Junction Craft Brewing and pick up a Growler!


St. Ambroise Scotch Ale


Uncommon Brewer’s Baltic Porter



Please drink responsibly this holiday season and look for community drive home programs in your neighbourhood.

A Taxi, Operation Red Nose and Safe-T-Ride are great resources for the smart ride home.
