Anderson Valley: Winter Solstice Ale


Winter Solstice Ale

This award winning ale is brewed inside a Bavarian-style brewhouse with copper kettles that the owner, Ken Allen, brought from Germany. Dedicated to quality, Anderson Valley uses water drawn from wells on the brewery property along with Pacific Northwest hops to create their classic line of beers. The Winter Solstice Ale is medium bodied and easier to drink than some of the other seasonal ales, and its a good introduction to this style.

    Some seasonal ales are to sweet and heavy for me but the Winter Solstice is a really great find. Anderson Valley has a great lineup of beers and they are fairly easy to locate in major supermarkets, at least on the West Coast.
