Some recent weather made me realize it is actually winter. Like, right now in Florida. Yes, we've gone through the Thanksgiving-Hannukah-Christmas-New Year's gauntlet, but the weather outside was mild, not frightful. And that sudden dip into the 40s? Time to break out the parkas and fur-lined caps!
The temperatures will be dipping into the 40s again Wednesday night, so we might as well make the most of it. For these random odd days of coolness, it's pleasing to have a beer that warms the stomach -- even though the mountain of scientific evidence points to alcohol being terrible at actually warming you up. Luckily, we're not freezing to death, so drink away.
So what to crack open on a chilly night?
