It's Winter Beer Month!

Oh, the silent majesty of a winter's morn... the clean, cool chill of the holiday air... an asshole in his bathrobe, emptying a chemical toilet into my sewer...

That's right folks, it's December. Time for Christmas, Festivus, Chanukah...and if your family is anything like mine and Clark Griswold's, booze - and lot's of it. Luckily we live in the Pacific Northwest where there is a proliferation of beer, wine, and spirits. This time of year, beer is the showcase piece as our local brewing family creates their winter brews; often stronger, darker, and boozier than normal to help us humans get through the cold, dark winter.

Here at WestToast, we love it. Since it's our blog, that means you get to love it too for the entire month of December. It's Winter Beer Month!

Throughout December our staff will be scouring the West Coast near and far, searching for the finest in local craft winter microbrew. We'll feature some stuff you can find in the store, some stuff you can't, and I think we're even going to hit a winter beer festival or two.

Strap on your big kid pants, get ready to drink some great beer, and keep an eye out for posts with the Winter Beer Month logo as featured at the top of this post.

It's the most wonderful time to drink beer!

PS - if you're in to the twitter, you can tweet Winter Beer Month @WestToast using the hashtag #WinterBeer!

  1. Winter is a great time for beer. Get out your stouts, dopplebocks and barleywines.

    I've been enjoying a Raspberry Chocolate Stout that is to die for! Brewed it in August with fresh, organic, locally grown berries. Wonderful!
