After careful deliberation and many pints, we’ve chosen Summit Winter Ale as our January beer of the month. The cold weather of January is a wonderful time for this dark, malty winter warmer. The beer nerd in me wants to note hints of chocolate, coffee and roasted malt.
This beer is tasty in both the bottle and on tap, but it really shines as a cask-conditioned beer. I had the pleasure of enjoying it at the Groveland Tap mid-December and was floored at the complexity of flavor and aroma. Smooth, creamy and oh-so-tasty. Another great Minnesota-made beer.
