We will be open right through until xmas & as such I thought we’d feature a different beer every day with festive inclinations.
Also be aware that we offer gift vouchers & a wide range of glassware for those struggling with present giving!
12 BEERS OF XMAS
Day 4 - Chatoe Rogue (USA) First Growth Creek Ale 650ml $15.00
Its becoming more & more evident that this oregon based producer are dead keen on diversification. Breweries, distilleries & growing their own proprietary hops & malt is all part of the rogue brand. This particular brew & others in the chatoe rogue range are 100% estate made, meaning their own malt, hops & in this case local cherries. Based very loosely on the belgian kriek style this brew has vibrant cherry notes as one would expect, as well as some nice doughy, biscuity malt to support. Certainly not as hardcore as your kriek lambics & in fairness it doesn't profess to be. What we have here is a really nice, uncomplicated kriek thats not too sweet or too tart & would pair brilliantly with xmas turkey.
Day 5 - Estrella Damm (SPA) Inedit 750ml $10.00
Day 3 - Schlenkerla (GER) Rauchbier Marzen 500ml $6.00
Day 2 - Eggenberg (AUT) Samichlaus 330ml $11.50
