Winter is approaching and that means holiday brews are hitting the stores. A nice choice is Lost Coast’s Winterbraun, a microbrew that is as holiday-appropriate as you’re likely to get. The secret is chocolate and caramel hops, which give this brown ale a distinct flavor of cocoa powder, even a bit of grittiness in the finish. Not too heavy, but a good fit with holiday foods like turkey and stuffing or even a pumpkin pie. I’ve had no trouble knocking down several of these over the last week as the weather has gotten progressively colder, though to be honest the freaky, surreal snowboarder on the label is a real turnoff against what is otherwise a decent brew.
