December is often regarded as a month best enjoyed with rich, full-bodied red wines or popping bottles of bubbles to cheers at annual get-togethers, but we think this is the perfect month to explore the warming effect of winter beer.
We are thrilled to offer you some strong ales to get you through the cold season, perfect beers to sip fireside or pair with holiday treats. Both the Dick’s Diamond and Anchorage brews are exclusive to our members this month. And although we encourage you to pop your bombers and share with your loved ones, these are great brews to crack open when all the company has gone and you can enjoy in peace and calm!

ST FEUILLIEN CUVEE DE NOEL
Celebrating the 49th anniversary of brewing Cuvée de Noël, Brasserie St. Feuillien is excited to share their holiday treat with you! This beer is considered the best brew of each year and is directly made by Master Brewer for your enjoyment. Designed to battle the winter cold, it’s strong, dark and full bodied!
DICK’S DIAMOND WINTER ALE
Named for Dick’s love of skiing, Double Diamond Winter Ale is the perfect après-ski after a long day out on the slopes. While the namesake terrains for this beer are exceptionally steep and designed for experts, this beer is approachable, warming and friendly for everyone!
ANCHORAGE GHOSTS IN THEIR EYES
The Ghosts In Their Eyes Brett IPA is fermented in oak barrels, with two strains of Brettanomyces for a tart sour that accentuates the dried fruit flavours.
AleSmith boasts the largest taproom in San Diego’s burgeoning craft beer scene of 155 competing local breweries. Holding over 25 prestigious awards from the Great American Beer Festival, as well as 5 gold medals from the World Beer Cup, trust AleSmith to deliver an example of the traditional IPA style to your palate!
EVIL TWIN / BLANK BREWING THE CHECK PLEASE
This collab, from two of our favourite nomadic breweries, Evil Twin Brewing and _____ (Blank) Brewing teamed up to create ‘The Check Please’ out of Dorchester Brewing in Boston. The name is a play on Blank’s ‘Can I have _____?’ series.
TWA DOGS THE MYSTIC KNOT
Twa Dogs Brewing hails from Vancouver Island by way of an enterprising Scotsman, owner Graeme Macaloney. Paying homage to their favourite Scottish Poet, the brewery and beers are named after the imagery found within the many odes, sonnets, and addresses penned by the great Robert Burns.
