I’m always on the lookout for winter 12-packs and I found a new one in the Otter Creek Vermont Sampler, winter edition. The mixed 12-pack included:
- Copper Ale, Otter Creek’s flagship brew is a German-style Altbier (5.0%)
- Stovepipe Porter, a well-hopped Porter, and quite drinkable at only 4.4% ABV
- Black IPA, this hoppy and dark unfiltered IPA is now a year-round offering from Otter Creek (6.0%)
- Winter Red Ale, a sessionable Amber Ale (5.5%)
The Winter Red Ale is Otter Creek’s new winter seasonal. It replaces the Raspberry Brown Winter Ale.
Otter Creek Brewing is located in Middlebury, Vermont. I found this 12-pack at Total Wine in McLean, Virgina.
