Just picked up a bottle of Alaskan Smoked Porter. Not technically a holiday beer, but tasty! If you like spiced beer, look for Anchor's Special Ale.

Winter beers

There are so many now. Just go into Whole Food or BevMo and pick up ten or twenty.

We just did a winter beer tasting at my friends William's pad. There were 16 beers in all and I don't even think that included all I've seen at the shops.

I'm a fan of Belgian's right now so Gulden Draak Vintage 2009 Ale, Delirium Tremens Christmas and N'Ice Chouffe all were worthy.

Avery and Sierra's winter ales were strong contenders and if you like the spices as mentioned above Anchors Christmas Ale is a must.

Alaska's spruce tips and Jubel (previous favorites of mine) were not robust contenders this year.

21st is serving up a tasty winter warmer in a can too.

Jolly Pumpkin brewery rarely disappoints either though I have as yet to get hold of their seasonal.

The Smoked Porter is my favorite. Got hooked on it about 12 years back at a brewfest in Chico.
