Plum Pudding

Every family has a few Christmas traditions and this one’s ours. By using a blend of pale ale and crystal malt, Styrian Golding hops, and some festive ripe fruit flavours, it’s nothing less than Christmas wrapped up in a glass. We all love brewing it, almost as much as we love tasting it. Available from mid-November until the end of December.
