Seasonal Beers at The Local

‘Tis the season to join us for a seasonal beer at The Local!   Just like Santa, we’ve got a beer in our fridge for every good little boy and girl.

Cisco Pumple Drumkin – It’s pumpkin spiced everything season!  This is a great example of pumpkin beer that doesn’t taste like a pumpkin pie to the face.  The sweet malts, caramel, nutmeg and ginger are subtle and give way to a hint of roasted pumpkin.  Massachusetts, ABV:6.0%

Southern Tier Krampus Lager (22 oz) – This imperial helles lager is liquid Christmas – a medley of rich, dark malts and aromatic hops with fairly prominent pale malt and toffee sweetness up front.  New York, ABV: 9.0%

Bluepoint Winter Ale  – This hearty, robust amber ale has pale, Vienna, crystal and chocolate malts to create a balanced character of malt and hops with just the right amount of spice to warm you up during the colder months. New York, ABV: 7.7%

Victory Winter Cheers – Light in body, this fruity and warming holiday wheat brew delivers a crisp finish, with spicy hints of banana, clove and citrus.  Great option for a lighter seasonal beer. Pennsylvania, ABV: 6.7%

Anderson Valley Winter Solstice – A take on the classic style of “winter warmer,” this boasts a deep amber hue and rich mouthfeel. Its creamy finish will lift your spirits. Hints of toffee, spice, and caramel tease the senses making this the perfect ale to share with friends and family during the cold days and long nights of winter. California, ABV: 6.9%

Boulevard Snow & Tell Scotch Ale – A malt blanket of sorts, this is Boulevard’s interpretation of a Scotch Ale or Wee Heavy. Features rich, caramel malt sweetness punctuated by spicy/herbal hops Missouri, ABV: 6.3%

Anchor Christmas Ale  – This rich, complex dark spiced ale has been brewed for 41 years, but the recipe  (and the tree on the label) changes every year.   The tree this year is a Deodar Cedar.  Everything else is top secret. California, ABV: 5.5%

Lagunitas Brown Shugga – Described as “dangerously slammable,” this winter release from San Diego brewery Lagunitas is always high anticipated.  They feed yeast brown cane sugar resulting in molasses and toffee notes complemented by bitter hops.  You’ve been warned. California, ABV: 9.9% (!)
