“We chose these beers because they are all very complex and intriguing – something to be savored,” explains SaveOnBrew’s Jenn Fusion. “New Year’s is a great time to introduce wine-lovers to flavors like spiced coriander or smoked plum, which is very surprising for people who may have only ever tried a Budweiser or a Heineken.”
“I have my less expensive daily staples that I price out on the SaveOnBrew website,” she adds, “but every once in a while you want to get a nice gift for someone or blow minds. The Ommegang Hennepin and Allagash White are neat because you can buy them in big, corked 750 ML bottles made for sharing when you’re in a generous mood.”
