Most breweries offer winter brews this time of year, which are usually darker and spicier than the other choices. These seasonal beers appeal to a lot of drinkers, however, some stick with the same brand all year 'round.

How about you? Do you switch your beers choice based on the season, or is it always the same brands for you regardless of the weather?

Sound-off! Tell us more about your wintertime beer consumption.

My beer intake changes with the season. In the winter, I like stouts or porters. The darker, heavier beers complement the way I'm feeling during this timeframe. Bring on the Guinness, East Side Dark, Sam Adam's Winter Lager, Leinenkugels' Fireside Nut Brown or any of the other wintery brews.

My beer intake is the same during all of the seasons. I like what I like whether I'm sweating bullets or trapped in a blizzard. Call me a creature of habit, but I really don't switch up my beer choices very much. I might enjoy an occasional winter beer, but only as a novelty.
