Anderson Valley Brewing Company Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale
Tonight’s featured beer is Anderson Valley Brewing Company Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale. I’ve stated many times before (read about it here) I’m a fan of Anderson Valley Brewing Company and enjoy the styles and types of beers they brew. AVBC Winter Solstice is one that I eagerly await each year and when I see it arrive I usually purchase a case of it since I can’t seem to get enough of it.
From the Anderson Valley Brewing Company website:” The holidays are a special time in Anderson Valley. The days are darker, weather colder, and foods richer. And Anderson Valley’s Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale is perfect for this time of year. Deep amber in color, with an inviting aroma of spice and nutmeg, it was made for the turkeys, cranberries, hams, and yams of the holidays. Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale evokes a crackling fire, drifting snow, and smells of home. A hint of spice and hop bite to balance out the creamy and smooth mouthfeel, and medium sweetness. As with all of our products, Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale is never sterile filtered nor heat pasteurized.”
