Redhook Brewery
Woodinville, Wash.

The Craft Brewers Association's ( BREW) Redhook Brewery has been cranking out different versions of Winterhook for 29 years. The cozy malt flavor and dark body, however, are as dependable as a good set of flannel pajamas.

This year's version comes in with a whole lot less caramel than last year's offering. Instead, drinkers will get a spicy, roasted rye malt that puts a biscuity buffer between a drinker and this brew's 6% alcohol by volume. With some Centennial hops thrown in for just a bit of bite, Winterhook spends the eve of its 30th birthday slightly feisty, but still mellowed with age.
