Brrrr … winter is here! Why not warm up by cozying up under some blankets with a delicious beer?

Here are some of the best beers for cold weather:


Stouts have big, chewy flavor profiles that lend themselves to sipping and savoring. Better yet, stouts taste just as good at room temperature as they do cold, unlike lighter styles such as Pilsners and pale lagers. So, if you’d like a beer but are too chilly for a frosty drink, reach for a delicious dark brew like Goose Island Bourbon County Stout.


Like stouts, porters are dark and rich, and taste good at warmer temperatures. Try a Baltic Porter, which has a smoky, rich flavor and a full-bodied mouthfeel. This style was developed by Western European brewers to ship to Baltic countries (where it’s often cold). Hangar 24’s Chocolate Bomber is a particularly delicious example.

The best winter beers generally have some sort of toasty malt and spice flavor and tend to be higher in alcohol. They are heavier, thicker and more aggressive than warm-weather beers you sip on the beach. You might not identify winter beers as refreshing, but they will definitely warm your soul, which is what you need when the harsh winter weather comes knocking on your door!

Winter is the perfect time for stocking up on great cold-weather beers. Your customers will thank you as they warm up with a full-bodied brew! Place your order from Triangle Distributing today to taste the delicious beers mentioned above, plus many more!
