    So the Christmas decorations are down and we are about to settle into the long cold winter here in the Northeast. Grey skies, freezing temperatures, etc. But that's good beer-drinking weather in my opinion. Other than Hopslam, what great winter seasonals are you looking forward to drinking in these next couple months?

    Aren't you a bit late to be bringing up Winter beers? Another thread is about Sam Adams Spring Variety pack already being out! ;)

    Arcadia's Shipwreck Porter is always something to look forward to in the winter months, as well as Abacus, but I guess neither are really seasonals.

    I recently had some Old Man Winter Ale from Southern Tier. I thought it was pretty good, I'd buy it again.

    I'm waiting for the next cold night to crack open a bottle of Southern Tiers Back burner barleywine, big foot, old ruffian and Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout. I look forward to those the most during the winter. Oh, and I can't forget Avery's Old Jubilation and Great Divide's Hibernation ale for a nightcap.
