Tomorrow is the Winter Solstice. Whether you refer to it as Midwinter, The Longest Night or The First Day of Winter one thing is certain this one dark day.
On this day before the darkest day of the year, it seems appropriate that two unique dark beers should debut to warm our inner beer geek.
The Winter Solstice lasts only a moment in time, the same goes for this beer. Only available at Squatters Brewpubs.
Our second release comes from what may be one of the most prolific breweries in the nation. Utah's Epic Brewing.
Epic's Double Skull is full of solid malt, dark fruit and fruitcake that fades very nicely into slight char and chocolates. There is a special release party for Double Skull, tonight at the Poplar Street Pub. It will subsequent be available everywhere Epic Exponential Series is sold.
Even though it's looking to be a dreary day, I have a feeling many beer lovers may not notice.
