Ok fellas...What should we be looking for? With old man winter around the corner, what brew will make us feel nice and warm this winter? I'll start it off...

It doesn't have a clever winter name, and it's not even a winter brew, but there is only one beer I grab when the snow is falling,

just picked up a six of never summer ale from boulder brewing.

I saw that Saturday and wondered how it was. How was it?

For me, winter means the big Russian Imperial Stouts. I love Brooklyn Chocolate Stout and Victory Storm King. Porters are also ok, but to me Porter is like a Stout, just not as good.

The winter specific spiced stuff is not something I care for.

Had a Murphy's can after the last DH race of the season. I was celebrating winning the NY State DH Championship at Plattekill so it tasted like the best beer ever. :D

I tend to drink ales in the summer. Tall people are weird (except for the MTBNJ Twin Towers!)
Technically speaking, the beers you mentioned are ales. The yeast strain is what differentiates an ale from a lager. Ales, top fermenting and warmer ferm. temps. Lagers, bottom fermentation and colder temps.

I'm working on a six of Victory Hop Whallop, hoppy as can be. Has a minty scent to it. Deliciously strong hop flavor.

Aaaaah Victory Hop Devil. I went with Weyenbacher Winter Ale tonight for dinner. Who needs food when you have beer. :D
