Three Floyds Alpha Klaus Christmas Porter

Just because it's the holidays doesn't mean hop lovers need to take a break from palate challenging beers. While most Christmas brews are sweet and festive, Three Floyds Brewing offers up Alpha Klaus ($12), a hopped up holiday Porter. The cousin of their hoppy pale ale Alpha King is brewed with English chocolate malt, Mexican sugar and a nice variety of festive American hops. So if you like your holiday beers hop forward with a nice dry chocolatey finish, Alpha Klaus has been gift wrapped just for you.

  • 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.

  • Fireside Chat Beer

    There's nothing quite like the holiday season, mostly because of the unique beer releases that make their way to bottle shop shelves. 21st Amendment Brewing in San Fransisco agrees, and treats us with Fireside Chat ($12) to help usher in the season. Just like the depression-era radio addresses FDR used to churn out, this spiced winter ale is both warming and illuminating. It's a dark English-style ale with a nice balance of spices that bring to mind vanilla, nutmeg and caramel malt. A flavorful, comforting beverage for any winter evening.
