'Tis the Season for Michigan Winter Beer

'Tis the Season for Michigan Winter Beer

‘Tis the Season to Celebrate Michigan Beer!

Each day it seems to get a bit colder and darker here in Michigan. As winter settles in, remember to embrace the perks of a Michigan winter, mainly the exceptional beer Michigan breweries create for the season.  

Winter or holiday beers tend to focus on rich malt flavor with a low hops profile, often including holiday spices to create the perfect balanced beer. There are a lot great selections out there and many can be found in our home state. Here is a review of some of the best winter beers crafted in the Michigan.

Arcadia Imperial Stout 9.0 % ABV

This bourbon barrel-aged stout pours a rich black color while proffering up an intoxicating aroma of heady roasted malt and molasses. On first sip, the complex brew presents the tongue with an intricate mix of coffee, cocoa, hints of prune and black licorice while a heady dose of hops balances out the stout.

Arcadia Nut Brown Ale 5.6% ABV

Six varieties of malts work together to produce this English-style brown ale that features a sweet caramel nutty flavor with a touch of herbal hop bitterness. The medium-bodied brew is an easy drinker with a creamy light mouthfeel.

Frankenmuth Winter Bock 7.4% ABV

When pouring this German-style lager make sure to appreciate its rich mahogany color and aroma, full of toasted malts and light hops.  The full-bodied lager warms from the belly out with chocolate and caramel notes that end in a dry finish.

Perrin Brewing Nut Brown Ale 5.4% ABV

This ale’s strong hazelnut and almond components are heartily represented on the tongue while a low hops profile helps to create a smooth drink. The seven types of malts used bring a malty and toasty sweetness to the medium-bodied ale that has a soft and warm finish. 

Right Brain CEO Stout 5.5% ABV

This rich stout lives up to its name with bold chocolate, espresso and oatmeal flavors that combine to create a vibrant yet balanced beer. As a full-bodied beer, it pours black and exhibits a hint of jolt caffeinated coffee with a hops finish.
