My wife loves thick, creamy soups during the winter, so when it gets cold I'll make broc. and cheddar soup, shrimp and corn bisque, and beer cheese soup. I usually have a pale ale or IPA on tap and either of these go well with the soups. After the meal, a nice winter warmer. I've got two winter warmers conditioning and a saison de noel to be ready in Dec, so we'll see how those turn out. So for now Avery Jubilation, Great Divide Hibernation, Odell Isolation are perfect (I saved a six pack of each from last year, haven't checked to see if they are out on the shelves).
