Top 10 beers for winter

Brooklyn Winter Ale

Brooklyn Winter Ale

A beer from across the pond, although this beer is “based on the satisfying malty ales of blustery Scotland.” US craft brewer Brooklyn uses Scottish floor-malted Maris Otter malt in the beer, plus three other malts and American oats. The result is a 6.1% abv beer with “deep bread flavours and a full copper colour”.

The beer is said to an ideal partner for robust winter foods like stews and meats as well as cheese. And “should you enjoy a cigar in front of the fireplace, this beer will play along nicely.”
