…get down with winter beer. The Summit Winter Ale is a darker beer that can be enjoyed by those whose palates are more accustomed to enjoying lighter offerings. The subtle coffee and caramel/chocolatey floavor is what I like most about this beer. You can definitely have more than a few without feeling overly full, in contrast to what a lot of people generally think drinking dark beer will do for the stomache. Compared to Sam’s Winter or Schell’s Snowstorm, I would definitely take Summit over either of these any day.
I used to be a typical Bud/Busch/Michelob guy. Whatever's cold, right?! (I grew up in a town of 690) However, around my final year of college, I developed tastebuds and soon began to whistle a different tune. My fridge now usually contains about 5-7 different beers at any given time, and I'll be dipped in dog doo if you can find a domestic light beer in there. My tastes are more inclined to the dark side, with Stouts and Black Lagers being my favorites, generally speaking, though I have developed a love for IPAs as well. View all posts by Joe Lunchpail
