A festive delight, Christmas Ale is a traditional barley wine exudes biscuity malts and rich vinous fruits, all balanced by a strong hop bitterness. Warm the soul with this award-winning beer which embodies the essence of Christmas spirit.
First brewed in 1972 Christmas Ale's popularity made it difficult to restrict its availability to just the Festive Season. Fortunately, the high alcohol level enables us to brew enough to last most of the year so enthusiasts can be kept happy all year round.
It is heavily hopped, dark and strong, like Christmas Pudding in a glass!
