10 Beers to Pour Down Your Throat This Winter…

Here are 10 beers that if you haven't tasted, or even if you have, you should pour down your throat sooner than later. Worth the trip to all these breweries to purchase. As always travel responsibly!

Drumroll please! In no specific order...

1. Tankenstein, Mill St Brewery

Think of it as the twisted big brother of their Tankhouse Ale.It has more body, more flavor and more alcohol … I really enjoyed the mix of the Cascade Hop Flavor and Rich malt/ caramel tones. A must try!

2. Betelgeuse Belgian Style Tripel, Mill St Brewery

A fantastic beer and another must try!! It is named after a constellation and monks used to name their “stronger” beers after “troublemaking” characters of lore so this winter classic got named after one of the main stars in the night sky … same as the devilish character BeetleJuice in the movie!

Yes high in alcohol again..oops ;) It’s a medium/full bodied beer that starts out sweet and finishes dry… Bubblegum is the answer your looking for when you try to name the slight mysterious flavor in it!

3. Chocolate Orange Porter, Bell City Brewing Co

Well it is still being made but with the taste test being passed of their other beers I am looking forward to this one… and so should you!

4. Raven’s Heart Stout, Bell City Brewing Co

Do you like cigars then you will love this… wait that doesn’t sound very appealing. Let’s just say I am not a huge “Black Beer” Fan but can truly appreciate the smell & taste of this dark Belgian stout. Get it in you!!

5. Roasted Chestnut Brown Ale, Oast House

One of our favourite places to visit on Niagara On The Lake is Oast House… while there a couple weeks back they were actually peeling the chestnuts there to get ready for their return of the Roasted Chestnut Brown Ale.
