Not going to lie, I’m kind of hating this winter. The snowfall has been minimal. The sun has hardly made any sort of appearance. It is difficult to continually be in any sort of a happy mood when its dreary for over half the month. I have an idea. I wonder if drinking as if it’s nice out as if the big yellow sphere in the sky wasn’t hiding behind thick pillows of clouds, you know, summer will help bring out a little contagious joy. Now, I’m not going to say it completely work, but it definitely made me forget about the cold, at least for a little bit. Who knows, maybe you’ll have better results. Let’s take the scientific approach and conduct a few more trials. Post your results on our Facebook Page, tweet at us, or tweet at me specifically. I’ll contact the scientific journal with the lowest of standards and see if I can’t get it published.

And Now, the Brews


 

Inbound Brew Co | Contains Nuts | Peanut Butter Milk Stout
Inbound_Contains_Nuts_Can
Formerly known as simply “Peanut Butter Milk Stout” when it was distributed in crowlers, Inbound decided to upgrade this taproom favorite into four packs. This upgrade also came with a brand-new name, Contains Nuts. This light bodied creamy dream has aromas of roasted nuts, sweet chocolate, and, of course, peanut butter. Not overly rich, but nicely balanced, the notes of peanut butter meld seamlessly with chocolate to create a Reese’s like concoction. A solid choice if you’re craving something some chocolate and peanut butter but don’t like the feeling of gut rot in the morning. Be aware though, this is a seasonal, so it won’t stick around for long. Oh, and don’t forget, this does contain nuts.

Destihl | Synchopathic Apricot | Apricot Sour Ale
destihl-brewery-wild-sour-series-synchopathic-apricot_1510961085 This tart little elixir from Destihl is a dry-hopped sour ale brewed with an apricot puree is chock-full of delicious smells. Lemon, funk, grapefruit zest, apricot, and non-discrete tart note. The flavor is similar but with a cheekbone pulling sourness that slowly develops into notes of apricot, citrus, and some biscuit malts. There is a nice funk that combines with yeast and lemon. With light carbonation, Synchopathic actually pairs really nicely with a rich hearty stew. The richness from the stew help mellow out the overall tart from the beer and the apricot plays wonderfully with the deep flavors of a good stew. The perfect cold weather meal now has the perfect beer to boot. Trust me. Give it a try.

Earth Rider | Raspbecrush | Raspberry Wheat Ale
earth-rider-raspbecrush I may be drinking too many sours this winter, but this winter is nowhere near normal. Which is why Raspbecrush from Earth Rider in Superior is actually great right now. Aromas of fresh raspberries combined with a mild tart funkiness help you forget about the grey skies and the almost warmish temperature. The kettle sour also a flavor profile that adds a bit of sweetness from the wheat in the malt bill, which keeps the tart raspberries from becoming too tart, giving this a wonderfully refreshing finish. All you need now is a little bit more sun, a chocolate cake, and a nice big glass of Raspbecrush for a perfect winter snack.
