Today is the Winter Solstice, the longest night/shortest day of the year (here in the Northern Hemisphere) and the first official day of winter. Accordingly today’s Advent beer pick is a classic and tasty Winter Warmer that appeared way back in 2005 for the first year of the Beer Advent Calendar: Anderson Valley Winter Solstice.
This is a rich, malty beer at 6.9% alcohol by volume that is the perfect accompaniment to today’s Midwinter celebration.
Our Winter Solstice Seasonal Ale is a hand-crafted “winter warmer” with a deep amber hue and a rich, malty mouthfeel. Hints of toffee, spice, and caramel tickle the senses while the smooth, creamy finish will lift your spirits; a perfect beer to share with friends and family during the cold days and long nights of winter.
Anderson Valley packages this beer in 12-ounce and 22-ounce bottles as well as cans, so you have ample choices for presentation when you are gifting Winter Solstice to family and friends.
