COCKTAILS: Matty Nights Cocktail

Updated: Jan 11

Matilda, a Belgian-style pale ale with dried fruit, clove, and yeasty notes, is great for making fall-time drinks. The baking spice–like flavors that are inherently in the beer– completely transform the whole rye whiskey cocktail and transport you to crisp nights by the fire. —INGRAIN, Fall/Winter 2019
