A couple of years ago a buddy and I decided to drink as many winter ales as possible in one weekend.
Not sure if this pic has all the bottles we found. I think there were about 30+ total.
This included three year vertical tastings of Deschutes Jubelale and Sierra Nevada Celebration.
The winners were Samichlaus and 2005 Jubelale (3 years old).
The losers were AB's Winter's Bourbon and Anchor's Christmas Ale.
Red Hook's Winter Hook was surprisingly good. I normally don't like any of Red Hook's beers.
