The 2019 Nice List

At Bonbright, we cherish each holiday season for the way they bring us together as a community, to share in the triumphs and trials of each year and to reflect on our growth as a family filled with great partners. As beer minded people, we always do this over a few pints of our favorite brews.

There is no time of year better to pair occasions with a few well-crafted beers. Shorter days and cool night beckon the emergence of spiced seasonal ales, sweet winter warmers, and chocolate forward stouts/porters. This year we have compiled a list of delicious seasonal offerings, as well as brews that give us that nostalgic warm feeling, we associate with this festive season.

Great Lakes Brewing Company Christmas Ale

This beloved midwest holiday favorite is the quintessential beer to share at your holiday get-together. Brewed with spices and sweet honey to keep you a-wassailing all season long. Pair with roast duck, sweet desserts and that uncomfortable sweater your grandmother gifted you last year.

Founders Brewing Company Canadian Breakfast Stout

Baby, it’s cold outside! Warm yourself with this bold and beautiful 11.7% ABV imperial stout. The award-winning Breakfast Stout, imperialized and aged in maple syrup barrels blending rich maple flavor, roasted coffee, and velvety chocolate into one transcendental drinking experience.

Miller High Life Champagne Bottle

A tradition passed down from parent to child for generations. Work hard and good things will come your way. We call it the High Life. A good solid beer for good solid people. This year, grab a bottle of Miller High Life and toast those special people who paved the path, the ones who help us become who we are and taught us that you always have to earn your beer. Cheers to those good solid people.

Leinenkugel’s Snowdrift Vanilla Porter

A full-bodied brew with hints of cocoa, coffee and caramel brought out by roasted malts and aged on real vanilla. Leinenkugel’s smooth and creamy winter brew is the perfect refreshment to warm you after a chilly snow shoveling session or paired with sweet potato casserole topped with those tiny marshmallows.

Southern Tier Brewing Co. Creme Brulee

Skip the cookies this year and indulge in a more adult way with STBC Creme Brulee Imperial Milk Stout. A rich creamy stout with notes of vanilla and custard, followed by a smooth milky finish that is uncannily true to the namesake. For a unique experience pair with vanilla bean ice cream as a beer float.
