Winter Lager:
Colored darker, this is one of their traditional beers for cooler temperatures at 5.6% ABV. Blended with spices, but overall smooth taste and slight cinnamon feel to it.
Our Review: 7.8

Holiday White Ale: This holiday treat has a pale golden color to it, and has a blend of nutmeg, cinnamon, and mild citrus taste. Relatively strong at 5.8% ABV.
Our Review: 7.5

Old Fezziwig: Just shy of 6% ABV, this beer is sweet. Carrying a strong caramel, and chocolate sensation. By no means a typical session beer.
Our Review: 7.4

Holiday Porter: The belle of the ball for this winter variety pack. Dark colored holding approximately 5.8% ABV. This rich tasting beverage is perfect by the fireplace on a snowy night.
Our Review: 8.4%

Reunion IPA: Another high ABV at about 6%, comes in golden color. A very citrus and hop-filled flavor. Ideal for IPA lovers out there.
Our Review: 7.2%

Boston Lager: Their traditional beer with the same great taste it always has at 5% ABV. Truly one of a kind in craft brewing that is enjoyable at nearly all occasions.
Our Review: 8.0
