Winter has finally rolled around. If the fact that itâ€™s warm enough to wear shorts and rain showers are becoming frequent doesnâ€™t get you into the holiday spirit, perhaps Long Islandâ€™s own Blue Point Brewing Company might. With recipes created by seafood chef extraordinaire Paula DaSilva the classic Russian Imperial stout, fermented with more than a hint of sour cherries the appropriately named Jingle Mingle is sure to not only remind one of when snow was a normal sight in December but also to quench a mighty thirst. With ABV at just upward of 11%, the party is sure to start soon after the first bottle is opened. If stouts are not your speed then the Winter Ale will keep you in good company.Â A balance of malt and hops makes this a tasty beverage to enjoy on a winter night. Either way Blue Point has you in good hands no matter your taste.
