Top 10 beers for winter

27th November, 2013 by Andy Young

As the nights draw in and the cold weather comes, drinking tastes change for many people, so here’s a look at some winter beers to enjoy.

Fireside beerAs recently reported on db.com, there have been concerns raised over a “beer jacket” myth, so this is not about drinking order to beat the cold. Instead cold weather can inspire new tastes, with seasonal beers taking centre stage.

Thanks to the craft beer boom many brewers, both large and small, release seasonal winter beers. These tend to be slightly more alcoholic than ‘usual’ beers and carry a more malty and complex flavour. Fruit and spice are often added to the brew as well, and these are generally darker beers.

Previously we have brought you a range of winter warmer cocktails, but now we put the spirits down, grab a spot by the fire and crack open a beer.
