Our Snow Shed Winter Ale is the perfect beer to cozy up with as the temperatures start to drop here in Indiana. Our malty, brown ale was inspired by the traditional German Lebkuchen Christmas cookie. Our brewers wanted to capture the sweet, nutty, allspice flavors found in the Lebkuchen and create a festive comforting ale that can be poured and shared by the fireplace all season long.
Snow Shed is brewed with local honey from McClure’s Orchard/Winery located in Peru, Indiana. The honey elevates the malty sweetness and creates a delicious balance of flavors combining notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, nuts, and biscuit in our festive “hug in a glass” seasonal.
Paying tribute to our Nickel Plate District heritage, Snow Shed gets its name from a covering built over rail lines to keep heavy snow off the tracks.
Whether you enjoy being outside in crisp cold air, or staying bundled up inside, we have the perfect activities to elevate this winter ale and jump start the holiday season.
