Right about now, everyone is giving up on their New Years resolutions. You know what you should have resolved on? Beers! Drink more beer because it makes you happy and because there are a couple new Beers you should try. A beer a day keeps the doctor away? Of course! Just spill the beer on his face! Check these out:
Hardywood Gingerbread Stout
The beer geeks have ranked this sucker 100. That’s got to say something, right? Plus the vanilla, honeycomb and ginger flavors will help transition your palate from all those Christmas baked goods to the next wave of Girl Scout cookies.
Bell’s Brewery Hopslam
This limited release hopbomb signifies the end of winter and the beginning of spring. It’s a double IPA that has its bitterness mellowed by the addition of sweet honey.
Foothills Brewery Sexual Chocolate
Another limited release beer, Sexual Chocolate comes out in early February to great fanfare. And there’s a reason why: the molasses, toffee, chocolate and dried fruit notes will help you through those last cold days before spring’s thaw.
Ommegang Iron Throne
Notable brewery teams up with critically acclaimed HBO series Game of Thrones to brew collab beer. Need we say more?
DuClaw Old Flame
This brew is for those who get misty-eyed around Valentine’s Day about the one that got away. Or for those who just enjoy drinking.
21st Amendment Marooned on Hog Island Oyster Stout
As you may have noticed in our weirdest flavored beers post, oysters are becoming a trendy ingredient in the craft beer world. This beer uses real oysters, imparting a salty, silky smooth flavor. You can taste the sea!
White House Honey Ale
No matter what side of the political spectrum you stand on, you gotta admit it is pretty cool that they are brewing beer in the White House. Actually getting a bottle of it is a whole ’nother story.
Your Own Homebrew
So you love beer. What better way to ensure that you have an endless supply of your favorite IPA or creamy oatmeal stout than by brewing your own?
