I did a Midwest beer taking extravaganza during the Christmas season. I was in search of a really great spicy beer. I came across a nice winter beer by Rush River Brewing out of River Falls, Wisc.
Rush River Winter Warmer is a decent Scotch ale. It has malty flavors with hints of spice and roasted toffee, and with a mild bitter finish, it’s very smooth and drinkable. I was really hoping for a spicier beer (not heat), but at 6.5 % ABV (alcohol by volume) this brown ale is certain to keep you warm during the cold winter months. Sit by the fire, pop a bottle and enjoy.
