To me, the term 'winter beer' means a lot more than a particular malt or hops profile. It's about a warming, filling, satisfying beer that is typically fuller-bodied and higher in alcohol.

The all-new Cigar Advisor Magazine is an online cigar magazine that brings a fresh, irreverent, and down-to-earth perspective on all things cigars to thousands of smokers. In addition to educational cigar content and behind-the-scenes cigar industry articles from some of the business’s top names, Cigar Advisor delivers an array of content about a variety of topics of interest to people who enjoy the cigar lifestyle. The magazine also features cigar reviews and ratings submitted by real smokers, and much more. Cigar Advisor Magazine has just published a new article entitled, "The MANual: Winter Beers to Brighten Your Merrymaking." The MANual is a regular department that features practical advice for men (and women!) on a variety of topics.
Cigar Advisor contributor and craft beer enthusiast Lucas Woith wrote the article, which starts with a basic overview of what constitutes a winter beer. "To me, the term 'winter beer' means a lot more than a particular malt or hops profile. It's about a warming, filling, satisfying beer that is typically fuller-bodied and higher in alcohol," Woith said. He added, "You can see everything from a golden ale to a barley wine to a stout and beyond. Sometimes the brews are also imbued with seasonal spices, such as clove, cinnamon, nutmeg, chicory, chocolate, or others. The list goes on."
Among the list is Cigar City Brewing of Tampa, Florida. "Anyone who's visited Tampa's Ybor City knows of the rich Cuban culture and love of cigars. Plus, these guys like talking beer/cigar pairings, so it was a natural to feature two of their offerings," Woith said.
Others include Portland, ME's Allagash Brewing Company, Rogue Ales of Newport, OR, and Goose Island, of Chicago, which recently merged with Anheuser Busch-InBev.
