Mims Distributing Company Releases Podcast on Holiday Beers

Distributor’s Craft Brand Manager Discusses Winter Beer Styles and Food Pairings, Offers Advice on Trying New Beers

Raleigh, NC, December 06, 2012 --(PR.com)-- Mims Distributing Company (http://www.mimsdistributing.com), a beer distributor servicing a nine-county area in and around the Triangle, has announced the release of a podcast on winter holiday beers. In the podcast, Tony Walldroff, craft brand manager, discusses the styles of beers popular around the holidays, from big, hoppy beers, such as Sierra Nevada’s Celebration Ale, to robust stouts, such as Samuel Adams’ Merry Mischief Gingerbread Stout, and rare, collectible beers, such as Anchor’s Christmas Ale, which changes annually to a new recipe, making each year a one-time treat. In addition, he offers advice to novice beer drinkers on trying new beers and which beers to bring to the table to consume along with the holiday meal. This podcast can be found at: http://bit.ly/QGCtTB.

“The winter months and the holidays are a great time of year for big and flavorful beers that pair nicely with the rich foods and colder weather of the season,” said Walldroff. “If you are intimidated by the big selection, head to your local specialty beer bar and try what is available on tap. Find what you like, then visit a specialty grocer or store to purchase that perfect holiday beer.”
