Top 5 Beers of the Month – January 2016

  1. Xocoveza – Stone

    Tastes like a Mexican dessert – but it’s beer! Cinnamon, Coffee, Vanilla, Nutmeg, yum.

  2. Smoke & Dagger – Jack’s Abby

    Solid smoked lager. Inexpensive but tastes like it cost more. Great value

  3. Equinoxe du Printemps (Maple Scotch Ale) – Brasserie Dieu du Ciel!

    Full bodied, big alcohol, but smooth and delicious. Dieu du Ciel can do no wrong and worth a trip to Montreal.

  4. Noel – Baladin

    Had this at Eataly (their Manzo restaurant to be exact) and then sought and found a 750ml bottle at New Beer Distributors for $12 or $13!

  5. Bikini Blonde Lager – Maui Brewing

    My friend Cris said this is his favorite beer – so had to try it when cans hit NYC. BeerAdvocate gives it an 83 – but I think it’s definitely 5 points higher than that. To me – it was Lager with Hawaiian fruit notes.
