Tis the season!
It's getting close. We're only a few months away. Christmas? No. Winter break? Please. New Years? Meh. I'm talking, of course, about winter beer season! We're starting to see rumors and descriptions coming from some of the breweries. Deschutes, for instance, just updated the website for their winter brew, Jubelale (via twitter). This is my favorite time of the beer-year, because the breweries tend to let themselves get more creative for this season than for any of their other seasonals. Anchor changes their Christmas brew every year, and it's always amazing. Everyone seems to have a winter beer, and most of them (the best ones anyway) are dark, rich, warm and inviting, everything you want when it starts to get cold (or not, here in San Diego). I can't wait to see what we get this year!
