Space for Spices - Holiday beers

Brooks on Beer: Spice beers:
"For centuries, beer makers have added distinctive flavors to the classic mix of malted barley or wheat, hops, yeast and water to give the brew its own signature style. Historically, they've added fruit, flowers, herbs, roots and even vegetables -- and as expensive, rare spices became more available, brewers began using them to flavor their beer, too. Today, many spices are still used in beer, although they're generally reserved for special releases, and the holidays always bring a flurry of spiced beers."
