"Melted Snowman Winter Warmer Ale"
Brewing Company: Whitestone Brewery
Located on Whitestone Blvd. in Cedar Park, Texas, Whitestone Brewery is smack dab in the middle of a growing city full of avid craft beer drinkers and supportive community members, exactly what you want when you open up a small brewery.
Owners Ryan and Danielle Anglen opened Whitestone Brewery with a vision in mind - to provide a space where people can enjoy a high-quality, meticulously crafted beer while exchanging great conversation with friends, family, and peers, unwinding after a long day, or enjoying live music and planned events out on the dog-friendly patio.
Style of Beer: Winter Warmer Ale
What's a Winter Warmer, you ask? Simply put, it's a label used to describe many winter seasonals. These brews are meant to keep you toasty in the winter season and generally balance a malty body with a tinge of hoppy bitterness.
The origin of this brew is mysterious and can boast a number of flavors, including molasses, cinnamon, or plums (to name a few). These beers are hearty and generally contain a higher ABV to keep spirits bright.
Whitestone Brewery's Melted Snowman Winter Warmer Ale is a celebrated seasonal beer brewed with oats and German caramel malt, which is then spiced with cinnamon and nutmeg in the fermentation process. Known to many as “Christmas in a glass,” the Melted Snowman possesses a dark brownish Amber body with a subtle hint of spice and nuttiness.
