7 {Seasonal Beers} to Get This Winter in Hoboken

Winter is coming! Just kidding, it’s already here. To help us survive the freezing cold, and yet another winter without Game of Thrones, there is seasonal beer! If you prefer beer instead of winter cocktails, then have no fear. Here are some of my favorite winter beers you can get in Hoboken this season.

1. Mad Elf Beer

Mad Elf

Mad Elf Beer has hints of cherries, raw honey and cocoa, along with notes of cinnamon, clove and allspice – basically everything you want while you’re sitting by a fire watching Netflix.

Where to get it: The Shepherd & the Knucklehead


2. UFO Winter Blonde


If you like vanilla-flavored coffee, then this is the beer for you! UFO’s Winter Blonde is very light and has hints of vanilla in every sip.

3. Anchor Christmas Ale


This creamy, Christmas special is packed with flavor, including everything from roasted nuts, to herbal spices, to honey, and more.

Where to get it: Mills Tavern

4. Sam Adam’s Winter Lager


Sam Adam’s seasonal beers are (imo) always awesome. The Winter Lager has hints of cinnamon and ginger, pairing great with a nice warm dinner or even leftover Christmas cookies!

Where to get it: Urban Coalhouse

5, 6, & 7: Lagunitas Brown Shugga, Victory Winter Cheers, Brooklyn Winter Lager

Looking to have a cold one curled up in front of your TV this season? Check your nearby Hoboken liquor store and grab one of these winter specialties! Lagunita’s Brown Shugga’ Ale is made with sugar cane. Yummm. Victory’s Winter Cheers is a fruitier beer, with hints of citrus and clove. Lastly, Brooklyn’s Winter Lager is another one of my favorite “staple” beers. It’s a little on the heavier side, and has hints of chocolate and roasted barley.

Where to get them: Your Local Hoboken Liquor or Beer Store
