Kick off the winter season in style with Ode to Mercy from Wild Heaven Craft Beers. This is a high end beer with an oak and coffee base, so you know it’s going to taste great on that cold night sitting by the fire. This is a great beer to sip by itself or pair it with holiday cookies or a delicious dessert. For those cinnamon lovers out there, this is the beer you need to try.

Monday Night Brewing is no longer one of the best kept secrets in Atlanta. Monday Night brews beers with unique taste and with a week’s worth of flavor. It doesn’t have to be Monday night to enjoy one of their brews; you should treat yourself this winter to their Pilsner wheat malt called Fu Manbrew. This beer resembles a German beer; only a hint of ginger is thrown to put you in the holiday mood. This brew is great to pair with your holiday appetizers.

Breakout Stout is a festive tasting beer from upstart Jailhouse Brewing Company. A bold beer that says “winter,” Breakout Stout also has a hint of chocolate and chocolate malt to pair with a holiday dessert. It’s also a great stand alone beer for watching sports or after you come in from a brisk walk. Jailhouse Brewing likes to keep it simple, and this is simply a great beer.

Alpharetta’s Jekyll Brewing is more than just a flash in the pan. Jekyll uses the best ingredients and has quite a following outside the perimeter. You too can now enjoy all their beers. But for the winter season, their Major Horton’s Export Stout will keep your insides warm. This is a bold and strong beer with a black appearance that says, “drink me.” Full roasted malt and infusions of a little coffee and chocolate taste make this a great dessert beer and a great option for toasting in the New Year.
