A weekly look at what’s on LCBO shelves
WHAT: St. Peter’s Winter Ale (beer) Rating : NNNN
WHERE: Suffolk, England
WHY: What exactly is a winter ale? Is it a substitute for antifreeze? Can you wax your skis with it? Does it allow you to awaken on March 1 saying, “Olympics, what Olympics?” In the case of St. Peter’s, it’s a dark, complex, smoky, smooth beer. Don’t let the funky marmite bouquet inhibit you from curling up in front of the flat-screen with this 6.5 per cent ABV cockle warmer.
PRICE: 500 ml/$3.75
AVAILABILITY: At selected liquor stores (product #890079)
