WEB EXCLUSIVE Stay warm this winter by sipping on some deliciously dark brews from our fave local breweries.

As the temps drop this winter, instead of reaching for a hot cocoa, spike things up with a decadent dark brew from some of our favorite Raleigh breweries. (After all, that alcohol blanket really makes a difference…) These 5 local winter warmers are guaranteed to keep you warm and toasty through the cold.

Cotton House Craft Brewers

Savor the flavors of the holiday season all winter long at Cotton House Craft Brewers. Its Not My Gumdrop Buttons, which combines the spices of your fave gingerbread cookie with everything you love about a stout, is guaranteed to give you the warm and fuzzies.

Carolina Brewery

Looking for a beer to satisfy your sweet tooth? Pour out a pint of Carolina Brewery’s Chapel Hill Toffee Stout that puts everything you love about Chapel Hill Toffee in a pint. This dessert in a can is full of flavors of dark and milk chocolate combined with the sweetness of caramel. Cozy up with a pint this Valentine’s Day at a Carolina Brewery taproom!

Crank Arm Brewing Company

Crank Arm’s signature winter warmer is back for another season. Its Icycle ale is a fan fave for good reason, with festive flavors like orange zest, cardamom and ginger. Sip on a pint after a Wednesday night ride or bring it home to enjoy while cozying up on the couch.

Trophy Brewing Company

Trophy Brewing Company’s Milky Way Stout is ideal for keeping the winter chills away. This salted caramel stout is the perfect combo of sweet and salty—and is the perfect accompaniment to Trophy’s creative pizzas and snacks. Our fave pairing? The Milky Way Stout and Daredevil pizza. Sip on this beer at Trophy locations, State of Beer, or pick up a six-pack at the grocery store.

Southern Peak Brewery

Channel the Flannel Brown Ale is the beer collab you didn’t know you needed this winter. This brown ale combines the brewing power of Southern Peak Brewery with beans from Peak City Coffee to create a balanced coffee ale. Grab a pint (and a bite from the rotating food truck!) at the brewery in downtown Apex.
