Winter Warmer

A type of winter seasonal beer, including old ales and mild ales that have been brewed during the winter months. In mid-eighteenth century England, some winter warmers were aged in oak barrels for months or even years. Tannins from the barrels would add flavor, and wild yeasts could be used to add a mild sourness. Winter warmers sometimes include spices to add to their flavor.
