Accepting the Inevitable: Winter's Here

Well, the news doesn't have to be all bad... winter has it's rewards, one of which is my first winter ale of the season, Anderson Valley Brewing's Winter Solstice Ale. Called a Winter Warmer by the brewery, I enjoyed the creaminess, dry finish, and the light touch of vanilla in the finish.  ABV 6.9%.
I had it as a sipper but would be very interested to do some food pairing. The Brewery's website states that turkey and yams are called for, among other holiday treats.  So, throw another log or two on the fire, toss a couple bottles into the snow to chill and get ready for a sensational holiday season!
