Shiner Holiday Cheer Beer

If you were wondering what the holiday season in Texas tastes like, look no further than Shiner Holiday Cheer ($9) from Spoetzl Brewing. It might not stand out amongst the sea of holiday themed brews lining your bottle shop shelves, but it's an underrated gem worthy of your attention. In the same way that the holidays are a little different in the Lone Star State, Holiday Cheer is a little different than most beer released during the season. It's a Dunkelweizen brewed with Texas peaches and roasted pecans, providing some sweetness along with a subtle, nutty finish. A great way to break up the monotony of typical Christmas beers and enjoy a taste of Texas.

  • Founders Backwoods Bastard Beer

    As temperatures begin to plummet and most of us are suddenly coping with less sunlight, we start to crave beer with some more malt and warmth to cap off an evening. One of the best candidates to fill this void is Backwoods Bastard ($15) from Founders Brewing. It's a Scotch Ale, an already full bodied and strong style, but this bastard has another trick up its sleeve. Aged in bourbon barrels, this seasonal offering delivers vanilla, butterscotch and bourbon scents and flavors. So put another log on the fire tonight and settle in with this 10.2% treat.

  • Funky Buddha No Crusts PB&J Beer

    In the ever expanding world of craft brewing, it's not easy to have a unique offering anymore. Extreme recipes are copied, and trending styles are suddenly being brewed everywhere. But at Funky Buddha Brewery in Florida, they have a one-of-a-kind on their hands with No Crusts Peanut Butter & Jelly Brown Ale ($12). We love a good PB&J, and we love beer, but it didn't sound like two things that would mingle well. Well they not only mingle well, but taste perfect together in this incredibly well balanced brew. The distinct aroma of creamy peanut butter and sweet jam come through in the taste as well, but the previously mentioned balance makes this much more than a novelty sampler.
