Warsteiner Winter Special Edition

5.6% ABV

Germans know a thing or two about the holidays. And they sure know a lot about beer. So it's no wonder they came up with a traditional holiday brew that's the perfect complement to the Christmas season.

Founded in 1753, the Warsteiner Brewery is still one of the largest privately held breweries in Germany, and its pilsner is one of the country's leading brands. Now their special edition winter beer is available stateside and you're going to want to snatch up a six-pack ASAP.

Warsteiner Winter Special Edition is made in accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516, which basically means the only ingredients are water, barley malt, and hops. The lager is simple and clean, but also full-bodied, malty, and well-balanced. The bottle is dressed up and Christmas-y, and what's inside will make you feel as warm and cozy as twinkling multicolored lights.
