The basket comes in a study steel bucket that will work great in your home bar or for those outdoor parties next summer to chill your bottles. You get six unique winter brews along with some fun snack items. My husband was excited when our sample product arrived as he is a big craft beer fan. I'm a fan of lighter saisons, ales and summer brews. His favorites are stouts, porters and dark heavy, hoppy ales, so he really has enjoyed gradually making his way through these new bottles. The upscale munchies all pair well with beer - popcorns, cheese, snack mix, flatbread crackers and salami. The bucket retails for $69.99. Here's a list of the full contents:
- Winterhook Dark Ale by Redhook - 12 oz. - Brewed differently each year, this Winterhook’s bold flavors and dark colors come from the addition of flaked oats and Munich malts that pair perfectly with three kinds of hops.
- Sick Day by Long Trail - 12 oz. - This hoppy brown ale is built for the cold, with pine and hop flavors balancing perfectly toasty malts for a smooth and easy to drink brew.
- Peak Organic Winter Session - 12 oz. - A winter wheat beer that uses dark malts to give it subtle toasty notes while still remaining quite hoppy due to the single-hop, dry hop process using Citra hops to give it the aroma of pineapple.
- Prelude Special Ale by Shipyard - 12 oz. - A rich, full-bodied English ale that's the perfect winter warmer - it boasts a hoppyfinish and a rich malty taste with nuances of holiday spices.
- Trösten by Von Trapp - 12 oz. - German for "comfort," Trösten is a smoked black lager with rich flavor that finishes smooth and clean.
- Goose Winter Ale by Goose Island - 12 oz. - Layered with roasted caramel flavors and rich chocolate undertones, this beer is perfect for long winter nights.
- Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper Kettle Corn by KingOfPOP.com - 1.4 oz. - A delicious merging of salty and sweet, this popcorn pairs well with all of these beers!
- Toasted Sesame Flatbread Crackers by Partners - .75 oz. - Sesame seeds are integrated throughout these crisp crackers, giving them a consistent and distinctive toasted sesame flavor.
- Savory Garlic Cheddar Cheese by Mountain View Cheese Co. - 2 oz. - Premium cheddar cheese made zesty with the addition of fresh garlic.
