Holiday Beers to Drink on New Years Instead of Champagne
Appearance: Dark amber brown in colour but gets hazier towards the end of the bottle. Large, white fluffy head.
Smell: Mild smell with subtle hints of sweetness.
Taste: Slightly sweet with a medium body and nice subtle orange notes. Pour with care as the yeast is easily stirred and can change the flavor from glass to glass in a notable way. It’s very carbonated which helps lighten the overall feel of the beer.
Appearance: Pours a dark amber with a white head.
Smell: Big, boozy bourbon and oak aromas with soft caramel
Taste: Complex malt flavors framed in oak, with hints of dark chocolate, vanilla, tobacco, coconut and just a touch of dark cherry. This sipping beer has a long, boozy finish.
Appearance: Dark with a full, ivory-colored head.
Smell: Fruity aromas, full of complex flavours like plums, dates and honey.
Taste: A very balanced beer, with a full-bodied taste and a perfect equilibrium between malty, bitter, and sweet. Long bittersweet finish with a hoppy bite.
Appearance: Pours a deep, bright golden colour. Very well carbonated, with a thick and overactive white head.
Smell: Nose is surprisingly sweet, and full of almonds.
Taste: This sparkling beer is dry like a champagne but has a strong, nutty flavour like an ale. Bold finish.
Champagne Beers (Biere de Champagne):
Sparkling Beers to Toast Instead of Champagne on New Years
A champagne-like IPA named after the driest of sparkling wines, fermented with Saccharomyces Trois and fully attenuated with the help of specialized enzymes. Generously dry-hopped with a mix of Vic Secret and Idaho 7 with notes of pineapple, passionfruit and papaya lending themselves to a crisp dry finish.
This champagne beer is the best can to crack to ring in the new year! Boxer Bubbly is described as “Champagne in a can” and if that doesn’t scream “Happy New Year!” we’re not sure what does!
The Miller High Life is a pale lager that is described as the “Champagne of Beers”, so you know it had to make it on this list. High Life is a light beer with a caramel note from the use of crystal malt and a balance of delicate bitterness and sweetness in the mouth.
Brewed with Champagne yeast. Highly effervescent, overtones of apricot and apple with a dry finish. Sparkling, celebratory.
