A Sampling of GA Winter Ales

This winter's Terrapin Tiramisu-Hoo fuses the chocolate of Moo-Hoo with the coffee and dessert notes of tiramisu. Also be sure to score a bottle of Terrapin's limited, Georgia-only release of Richland Reserve - 2014 Hopzilla mellowed for 14 months in rum barrels from Georgia's Richland Distilling.

Terrapin's luxurious W-n-B (Wake-n-Bake) coffee oatmeal imperial stout returns this winter and contains an appealing blend of Jittery Joe's coffee beans. Also explore the W-n-B Single Origin Series, where Terrapin employed a single varietal of coffee in each brew: Hawaii, Guatemala, Ethiopia and Papau New Guinea.
"Burnt Hickory is now making more beer than ever," owner Scott Hedeen explains. "A new Meheen six-head bottler lets us produce six-packs of Zeke and Cannon Dragger, along with four-packs ofBig Shanty. Our Charred Walls of the Damned has also hit the shelves as a 13.5% bourbon barrel Belgian-style quad. Noggin Knocker, our imperial eggnog milk stout, will be out in December."

Grab some bottles of SweetWater's holiday favoriteFestive Ale this winter. This perennial Atlanta winter dark ale boasts pleasant roasted and chocolate malt notes backed by elegant spices. Try a snifter alongside a plate of warm brie and crackers.

Southbound's Picture of Nectar
comes in as a sumptuous double IPA with additions of nectarines and elderflower. The potent ale's citrus, piney character is enhanced by the fruity, herbal notes from the citrus and flowers. This is a wonderfully designed ale with an elegant balance. Hops include Magnum, Columbus, Simcoe, Centennial and Cascade.
