TOP 20 WINTER BEERS

So you live in the Southern Hemisphere and it's cooling off after a long, hot summer. So nobody much in Australia or Africa is copping anything quite cold enough to generate snow. It matters not. That's how you're feeling inside.

And when you're suffering this kind of feeling (made clear by Beeriosity.com co-founder Shane Maguire this week complaining about numb fingers despite wearing woollen gloves in a relatively balmy 9 degrees), the traditional chilled ale just doesn't cut it.

But what does? Well, the European and Americans have known all about winter beers for centuries and some of the more enlightened southern hemisphere brewers are catching up, finally. 

So turn the beer fridge up to between 6 and 8 degrees and enjoy Beeriosity's favourite winter brews - if you can find them.
