If you’ve read our Seattle Winter Beer Guide your thirst for strong, malty brews is no doubt aroused. Three of those beers are featured in our Seasonal Six-Pack (which just so happens to be available at Whole Foods Market).

Here's what food and drink editor Allecia Vermillion had to say about them:

Hale’s Wee Heavy Winter Ale An unusual version for the style, with hoppy, floral notes has been around since 1985. 7.2 percent ABV


Maritime Pacific Jolly Roger Christmas Ale Beware: This ruby-colored staple drinks like a lighter beer, yet packs a potent 8.9 percent alcohol content. It was designed to taste good now, or in a year—or 10. 

Scuttlebutt 10 Degrees Below Here’s something you don’t see every day—an imperial wheat beer, technically a dark German dunkel weiss, or dunkel weizen, that somehow manages to careen between sweet, chocolate, bitter, and fruit. 7.4 percent ABV
