Review: Stevens Point St. Benedict’s Winter Ale

It’s 78 degrees outside, and that can only me one thing: Winter is coming!

Stevens Point is one of the first brewers to release its holiday brew, and this Winter Ale is a pleasing diversion from a summer of wheat bear and other lighter stuff. The initial taste is crisp and lightly sweet — not cloyingly fruitcake-like, as many holiday brews are — there’s more sweetness on the finish, as it gently turns toward a gingerbread tone, balanced by some mild bitterness and hoppy character.

Overall, it’s a very pleasant way to welcome in the holiday season. 6.2% alcohol by volume.
