A beer for Groundhog Day?

Kind of a whimsical post to commemorate Groundhog Day today. The groundhog saw his shadow, so six more weeks of winter. Bust out the barleywines and winter warmers!

Or, check out Carolina Brewing Company: they brew a different seasonal Groundhog Day beer each year. From their brews page:

Since our Anniversary is in the middle of the Summer, we decided it would be nice pick a time during the colder months to brew something different. So, we now celebrate the arrival of the small, furry fella with a small batch of something special. Past beers have included a Dry Irish Stout and a German Dunkel Bock.

This year’s beer seems to be a Doppelbock, based on BeerAdvocate (which is how I found it in the first place). Last year’s appears to be a stout, based on RateBeer.

That’s about all I can find online right now about Groundhog Day beers. Does anyone know of any others to share? Or homebrew recipes perhaps?
