Drink of the Week: Sweater Party Winter Ale

winter aleThe joys of the holiday season are many—good food, good friends, festive knitwear and, of course, holiday beers. Enter: Avery Brewing‘s Sweater Party, a warming winter ale loaded with toasty malts and mulling spices like cinnamon, orange peel, ginger and clove. Like taking a bite right out of the gingerbread house, the Boulder, Colorado, brewery’s seasonal winter ale is rich with sweetness and spice, but balanced with Bullion hops for a solid, bitter backbone. At 8-percent ABV, it’s sure to have you feeling warm and festive in no time, just like your favorite holiday sweater. Available through December. See averybrewing.com for distribution.
