Let me introduce you to “Tree Fingers,” the latest from Alter Brewing Company. The Downers Grove-based brewery has come up with the perfect beer for the weather.
Tree Fingers is a malty, balanced lager with a biscuity malt backbone. Clean, slightly roasty, with fresh, resinous, piney notes from the addition of spruce tips. If winter tasted this good, I’d hope for it all year.
