Five Golden Winter Beers

 

St Bernardus Christmas Ale

Every year this is our most popular Christmas beer. It's a traditional Belgian Quad that's had xmassy spices added. Expect boozy, molassesy, christmas cake-y flavours and make sure you take it out of the fridge a little before you want to drink it to get the full effect. You can buy the beer online here. Look at that cheeky little face, you know you want to.

Brasserie de la Senne Winter Mess

Another Belgian Strong Ale, this time from relatively new Brussels brewery, Brasserie de la Senne. Expect chocolatey, spicy, fruity notes from this 8.5% winter warmer. Would pair well with a roaring fire. Buy it here.

 

Lervig Christmas Shake

A Christmas beer doesn't demand malt in everything! Is what Lervig declare on this Milkshake IPA. For those of you that don't know, that means they've put lactose sugar in to the brew, which makes the beer smoother and sweeter. They've also added passionfruit and mango aromas for a tropical (southern hemisphere?) Christmas taste!

Tiny Rebel You Snows It

Double whammy here as not only is this a Christmas beer, but it's also a collaboration with everybody's favourite Welsh comedy rap group, Goldie Lookin Chain. It's an extra pale ale, so super refreshing, easy-drinking and a little bitter. Watch a video of the collaboration with song here and buy it here.

 

Anspach & Hobday Pfeffernusse Saison

Let's clear up what exactly Pfeffernusse are: they are tiny spiced cookies eaten in Germany, Denmark and The Netherlands. So as you can imagine, this beer is brimming with biscuity spiced and ginger notes. That along with the wax seal and Santa on the label make this a wonderfully festive beer.
