You know what happens at 4:30 on a Monday afternoon when you can’t think of an idea for a blog post? You do what any good American would do and pull something completely out of your repertoire (That’s French for ass, right?). Two things. First, it’s been over 6 months since we’ve posted anything resembling a poll on Aleheads. In that time we’ve gained roughly 100 times the viewership and have sponsors banging down our doors just to get a piece of this sweet action*. While polls of the past have been met with somewhat lackluster results, I’m hoping for a better turnout this time around.
*Yeah, that’s a blatant lie. It’s still just you and me that read this thing.
Second, which actually has something to do with beer, I hate so-called “Seasonal” beers. It’s not that I hate the beers that come out in concurrence with a particular season, it’s just that I hate things labeled “Winter Ale” when there’s no rhyme or reason to the labeling. With that, can some of you please tackle this poll to tell me exactly what I should be drinking this Winter season (Yes, I know it’s the Fall, I don’t care)? I’ve left off styles such as Imperial IPA’s/Stouts and Belgian Strong Dark Ales on purpose. I already know I should be drinking those. The rest of this poll needs answering though.
So, what’s your favorite “Winter” seasonal style?
