Drink Warm Beer On Purpose This Holiday Season (Recipe)

Warm beer. No, I'm not talking about that can of Pabst that's been sitting on the counter for days, but an honest to hops notion of serving a beer this holiday season that has been warmed. I am referring to the imbibing of a mulled beer - to warm and add spices and sweetening to it.

Now wait, before you storm off in protest, claiming that 'ice cold is the way beer is meant to be served', let me say that until modern refrigeration, beer was made and kept in beer cellars, where temperatures fluctuated depending on the time of year - people drank beer at whatever temperature it was served at, not giving it a second thought.
