Samuel Smith's Winter Welcome Ale

Throughout history, beer of somewhat higher alcohol and richness has been enjoyed for the winter holidays, when old friends get together to enjoy the season. Wassail, a festival to celebrate winter and the beer that goes with it, predates the Christian era. Winter Welcome is vintage-dated with a special label each year. Serve in a traditional tankard for the holidays.

History:
Beers were dark before the Industrial Revolution. With the introduction of inexpensive clear drinking vessels, translucent beers became fashionable. When this sparkling amber beer was produced, it was declared pale to differentiate it from porter.

Taste:
Captures the soul of beer. It has a fresh maltiness that reminds you that good beer is a product of the soil. Beautiful balance of malt and fresh hops.

Serving Suggestions:
Rare roast beef with Yorkshire pudding, roast chicken, cheese, smoked salmon, Dungeness crab salad, bouillabaisse, sushi, New York steak; spicy foods such as Mandarin cuisine; aged Yorkshire-style roast beef en croûte; tandoori chicken salad and pork stroganoff. Traditionally served in nonik glasses.
