If you read my British Beer Bottles post, you would know that I have been cleaning out my room. While in that post I disposed of several bottles that I had never even sampled, this time around I have managed to get rid of several bottles that I did personally consume, some of them even for this blog.
Over the last couple of years I have reviewed several beers that can only be found in stores at this time of year. So for your convenience, I have decided to put them all together into one post to help you navigate the oft’ overwhelming realm of the Winter ale/Christmas ale/Seasonal release shelves. This post is mostly applicable to British Columbia, but certain brews may be available in other jurisdictions too!
I tried a couple of bomber bottles during the pub crawl sequence of a Yule Dungeons & Dragons adventure, and I found myself particularly caught off guard by the Fernie Maple Porter. It didn’t even taste like a maple porter. I found myself wondering, “What in the heck is this beer all about? Did I make a bad roll on my character’s beer tasting abilities?”
