When you think of the winter, what comes to mind? Sitting in front of a warm glowing fire? Playing in the snow? What about about frolicking on the Florida beaches with a cold craft beer in your hand? Winter should be your favorite time of year because some of the greatest imperial stouts are released right here in South Florida. We picked out three of the most highly-sought after beers being put out right now that you must get your hands on before they're gone.

All of these special Winter releases are being produced locally at our favorite breweries: J. Wakefield Brewing, Funky Buddha Brewery, and Bangin' Banjo Brewing. Here they are.

Last Buffalo in the Park

This is Funky Buddha's Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial version of Last Snow. Not to be confused with 2015's Barrel-aged Snowed In, (which is aged in Heaven Hill bourbon barrels).

The guys over at Park Tavern in Delray Beach had an great idea to throw some Last Snow in their Buffalo Trace bourbon barrels and age it. And damn, it was good! This boozy treat is rich and thick. The boozy bourbon notes are all warm and fuzzy. It marries well with the coconut and fresh roasted coffee. Like an almond joy dunked in bourbon. Um, yum! This will for sure warm you up this winter.
