Avery’s winter strong ale has a gorgeous mahogany hue, a hint of hazelnuts, and a finish reminiscent of mocha and toffee. There are no spices—just a blend of five specialty malts. Old Jubilation Ale is comfortable being sipped and quaffed alongside many large cuts of meat you typically find around the holidays. Roast duck, crown roast, rack of lamb, prime rib, herb- and honey-crusted chicken, and all manner of gamebirds are great choices, as are seasonal soups made with spices such as nutmeg and cinnamon.
