Our 6 Favorite Colorado Winter Warming Beers

6 Favorite Colorado Winter Warming Beers

Winter has arrived in Colorado, which means you’ll be craving some cold weather beverages. But this doesn’t mean you have to abandon beer for mulled wine or whiskey to stay warm inside. You just have to choose the right winter weather brew. To help us, we asked the experts at Molly’s Spirits, off I-70 and Sheridan in Denver, to round up 6 favorite winter warming beers to cozy up with when the temperatures plunge.

1. Elevation Beer Company—Oil Man

If you’re snowed in and looking for something complex, then check out the Oil Man. This imperial stout has been aged in bourbon barrels and when poured is a deep black hue. It’s a strong brew that is meant to aid in relaxation and comes with flavors of coffee, chocolate and bourbon. This is a big beer, so pair it with some food, like a cheese and charcuterie board.

2. Diebolt Brewing—Postcard Porter

Diebolt’s signature porter is perfect for day drinking on the mountain. It is only 5.6%ABV, which is pretty low when compared to other choices here, and that makes it very drinkable. It has a slight creamy, sweet flavor with hints of roasted coffee and chocolate.

3. 4 Noses Brewing —Laika Boss

The Laika Boss is a Russian imperial stout that comes out heavy but smooth with chocolate and roasted malt flavors. It’s definitely a heavy beer that is meant to be savored and best drank at night, after the day’s activities and dining have concluded. We like enjoying it over a game of cards by the fire. 

4. Fiction Beer Company—Feely Effects

Milk stout lovers will want to try this green tea chocolate milk stout by Fiction. It features a tad of Matcha green tea powder that works to enhance the malt, barely and chocolate flavors of the brew. It’s a big warming beer that is best drank after a full day of cardio heavy winter activities.

5. Wibby Brewing—Double Dunkel

A seasonal brew by Wibby Brewing, the Double Dunkle is heavy on the chocolate malt and cacao flavors and has also been lagered with Madagascar vanilla beans, which adds a whole other layer. It is a very drinkable beer, and a great choice when you have out of town guests that you want to introduce to a true Colorado craft beer taste.

6. 14er Brewing —Sunshine Peak Coffee IPA

And then there is an awesome coffee IPA to wake you by 14er Brewing. The Sunshine Peak Coffee IPA features java from Huckleberry Roasters that adds a fruity, light roasted flavor to the hoppy IPA. It’s a balanced taste that goes down smoothly.
