Trust me, I love wine…all types of wine but as a host it’s fun to receive other types of gifts from guests. Why not trying grabbing a six-pack (or case, if you’re really generous) of one of our original New England brews? New England is home to loads of tasty microbrews that can satisfy even the most discriminating tastes.
Sure, there is the go-to Harpoon Winter Warmer but what else makes the grade? Try some of these on for size:
Whale’s Tale Pale Ale – Cisco Brewery, Nantucket, MA
Winter Palace Wee Heavy – Paper City Brewery, Holyoke, MA
Heron Ale – Nashoba Valley, Bolton, MA
Otter Creek Winter Ale – Otter Creek Brewery, Middlebury, VT
Belgian White Long Trail – Long Trail Brewing Company, Bridgewater Corners, VT
Winter Ale – Smuttynose Brewing Company, Portsmouth, NH
Gift bag or not, a little bow on top of your beer will do the trick. Get creative by tying on a beer opener or getting some sharp cheese or other treat to compliment the flavor. Cheers!
