It’s been almost a year since we reviewed the 2011 version of Garrison Brewing’s Winter Warmer.
The second 15th anniversary brew from Garrison is here! Back in the spring, we were treated to the Ginger & Mango anniversary brew which was fantastic. I had heard that a 2nd version would be coming out in the winter and only thing I knew that it was going to be dark.
We try the year round Hop Yard Ale, which is dry hopped as compared to their seasonal 3 Fields Harvest. The big difference between the two is how this one is what I would consider a very hoppy, almost a hop bomb. However, if you are a fan of IPA, this might appeal to you. […]

This is a NICE complex brew where the booze doesn’t bite you in the face. It’s not really a hopbomb as compared to some ofthe other IPA’s we’ve had. We’ve found this to be a great one to try and find some flavors other than hops.
