"Modern Real Ale", that's how Moor Beer Company describe their approach. They believe that beer is all about flavour, drinkability and enjoyment. Owner and head brewer Justin Hawke originally hails from California, so you'd be right to expect beer with plenty of hops from this brewery!
Remember this as you sip Forgotten Glory, a great ode to the American Pale Ale. It’s full of Cascade hops, giving notes of grapefruit which are perfectly in balance with the English malt.
Nor'hop is an ultra Pale Ale, full of citrussy hop flavours and a sessionable strength of 4.1% ABV.
Five Points get their inspiration from the British real ale tradition, combined with the best of the worldwide craft beer movement.
This shows very nicely in their flagship Pale. Hop-forward and citrus flavoured, as expected from an American pale ale, this one is balanced by some malty sweetness. With 4.4% ABV it's easy to drink as well.
The only lager in the pack also comes from FivePoints. Their Pils is a crisp beer, a modern version of a classic lager style. Unfiltered and dry-hopped, this results in a classic Bohemian style pilsner with a modern twist.
Having grown to more than 1000 employees and 46 bars, Brewdog celebrated their tenth anniversary in 2017. It’s no surprise then that alongside such explosive growth, Brewdog has become one of the most famous faces in the craft beer world and an inspiration for many.
For our Christmas pack we chose Cybernaut, Brewdog's last seasonal special of this year. It is juicy and packed with tropical flavours of peach, apricot and mango. The soft mouthfeel and mild bitter finish represent the most popular beer style of today: Session New England IPA.
For something different, you can taste the emerging trend of sour beer in the accessible Quench Quake, brewed with tangerine and grapefruit, which are both very much present. The sour character is refreshing; this whole beer is like an adult citrus lemonade.
A new generation of British breweries
All the beers in this pack are crammed with flavour, as you would expect from this new generation of beer brewers. Not only that, but they are easy to drink and perfect for enjoy during Christmas time. You can easily take it round to the in-laws’, to a festive party, or perhaps just save it to enjoy all for yourself.
