Cervezas artesanas para encarar el invierno - Beer Sapiens

For some, the arrival of winter seems like the time to substitute red wine for beer. But this change is a big mistake... well if it's for personal taste we understand, however in the world of craft beers we have many beers made to be appreciated during the coldest days.

Cervezas de Invierno

There are some aspects that make certain beers ideal for consumption during the winter:

  • Beers with higher alcohol content: in general, this aspect in beer causes a sensation of warmth in our mouth and body and a sensation of comfort.
  • Beers with body: also responsible for the sensation of comfort, and a more powerful sensory charge and more intense flavors.
  • Beer serving temperature: winter beers are served at higher temperatures, starting at 7 degrees. Also, the higher the alcohol level of the beer, the higher the temperature at which it is served.
  • It pairs perfectly with seasonal dishes: beers for cold days generally go very well with the denser and more intense winter dishes that we like so much.
