What will we as brewers be drinking with our Christmas dinner?

Wondering what beer to drink with Christmas dinner or want to impress your guests with your knowledge of beer pairings? Here’s what we will be drinking Christmas day and why.

When it comes to one of the most important meals of the year, we are all about keeping it simple and recommend a glass of our flagship pale ale, Siege as the perfect accompaniment to your festive feast.

Siege is inspired by West Coast American pale ales with a pronounced hop character featuring flavours and aromas of pine, resin, and citrus. This bold hop presence cuts through the richness of Christmas turkey and ham, providing a refreshing and palate-cleansing effect. The bright, zesty citrus qualities add a layer of complexity to each bite, enhancing the overall dining experience.

The hoppy bitterness in Siege serves as a counterpoint to the sweetness in glazed hams, cranberry sauces, or honey-roasted vegetables. This contrast creates a well-balanced and harmonious pairing.

Siege has a crisp and dry finish which is particularly refreshing alongside the hearty and savoury elements of a traditional Christmas dinner, preventing the palate from becoming overwhelmed.

This overall refreshing quality can be especially appealing during a festive meal, helping to cleanse the palate between each bite, leaving you ready to savour each new flavour.

Enjoy this festive pairing and cheers to a flavourful Christmas celebration! 🍻🎄
