Top 10 Winter Beers

Smooth caramel and dark chocolate notes make Full Sail Brewing Company's Wassail Winter Ale a seasonal standout


Full Sail Brewing Company Wassail Winter Ale
Winter Warmer – Oregon / October - December
7.2 percent ABV

Brewed by Oregon’s Full Sail Brewing Company, one of the first craft breweries in the United States, this multi-award-winning winter warmer has been ushering in the holiday season since 1988. The flavor varies slightly from year to year, with this year’s version featuring Pacific Northwest hops and caramel and dark chocolate malts. The aroma of this dark brown ale shouts out malt, with a touch of roast. The malt continues to shine in the full-bodied flavor with chocolaty notes and a balancing background of hops in the long-lasting finish, making this a beer that will appeal to both malt and hop lovers. The 7.2 percent ABV may surprise you, as this winter delight goes down quite smoothly.

Price: $8 for a six-pack of 12 oz
