Short’s is the master at unique beers, and The Woodmaster certainly doesn’t disappoint. A brown ale made with pecans and maple syrup, this sweet brew is fill of flavor. I’d almost describe it as breakfast in a bottle — it reminds me of pancakes with maple syrup — yet this beer is almost too sweet for breakfast. But that doesn’t mean it’s not perfect for dessert.
