Common Seasonal Beers for the Colder Months
Surely you’ve wandered into your nearest liquor store or brewery and noticed beers appear and disappear from the shop, sometimes failing to reappear for months at a time. You may be wondering why some beers are around constantly, while others only pop their heads out on occasion. Seasonal beers are becoming more and more common as beers utilize flavors that coincide with the weather, time of year, and the ingredients that are only available seasonally. Today, Big Dog’s wants to take a look at some of the common brews you’ll find during the colder months of the year and get you ready for a year full of good craft beer!
Ah, autumn. The leaves are falling, the air is slowly becoming more crisp, and there are colors everywhere, including reds and yellows and oranges. Lots of circular orange shapes. Yes, we’re talking about pumpkins. But there are plenty of other flavors that show up when the air starts to change and beers that tend to be associated with the turning of the seasons.
As winter rolls around, we are greeted by shorter days, darker nights, and sometimes unnecessarily cold weather.
The colder months of the year are the perfect time to explore beers you wouldn’t normally consume during the spring and summer. Big Dog’s Brewing has plenty of these drinks to choose from in the restaurant and taproom, so come by today and try a Moon Dog Barleywine or Sled Dog Imperial Stout and fight any cold weather you may find yourself facing.
