Coffee stout? Yes, please! This is a coffee and beer lover’s dream. With four pounds of ground French Roast coffee per barrel, you’ll get a ton of coffee flavor. With a touch of cocoa and tons of coffee, this is a must-drink beer this winter! I love this stout and I think you will too.

This annual imperial stout is aged in Willett’s Rye oak barrels for layers of toasty, spicy deliciousness. This beer is so insanely good and fought over, you need to grab this before it disappears!

Xocoveza Charred

Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout

Everyone seems to be enamored of Stone’s annual release of their Mexican hot chocolate-inspired Xocoveza and this limited edition “Charred” simply ups the ante by aging an already delicious stout in bourbon barrels for waves of tasty goodness. Enjoy!

Thirsty Dog Brewing- 12 Dogs of Christmas Ale

12 Dogs of Christmas Ale

Spiced Ale

Thirsty Dog Brewing | Akron, OH

ABV: 8.3%  |  IBU: 21
PRICE: $11.99  |  6-Pack Bottles

This is my go-to spiced ale for the season. It’s malty, sweet, and spicy. Not hot with spice, but busting with nutmeg, honey, cinnamon, and ginger. It will warm you from the inside out! Drink this beer with your family and friends this season.
