VIBE’s November 2019 beer picksPosted by: Sean Clarke
… It’s beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!
Hi everyone, hope you all enjoyed Sheff Beer Festival last month, we had an excellent night and it was great to help crown Triple Point’s Debut IPA as Champion Beer Of Sheffield for 2019, congratulations to all the TP team.
We’re very busy ordering all our Christmas beers at the moment, so I thought you might like a glimpse of what you can expect to see. November is a big month for Christmas Beer releases and so it’s never too early to start planning things. Whether you’re buying gifts for family and friends or making plans for your own holiday drinking, we can help, feel free to call into Beer Central at any time, we’re always ready to help you pick out a few special treats!
Anyway, here’s a look at three Christmas favourites that will hit the shops and pubs of Sheffield this month:
Amundsen – Super Santa 330ML Can & 4.7% ABV
These guys are well known for their big crazy Stouts, but rather smartly they’ve made their Christmas offering a bit more accessible. Super Santa is a Choco Shake Stout and with a name like that you’ll not be too surprised to hear you get Chocolate, Coffee and creamy Vanilla. This isn’t just a gimmick beer, Amundsen have brewed up a nice Christmas special, Santa will think it’s Super!
Bradfield - Belgian Blue 500ML Bottle & 4.9% ABV
Our Christmas season always starts with the arrival of this Sheffield legend! We start getting customers asking for Belgian Blue from August onwards and its arrival across the city is always greatly anticipated. Bradfield launched the 2019 version up at their pub, The Nags Head, on Thursday 31 October. Watch out for it hitting other pubs and beer shops from Monday 4 November onwards! This is a unique beer, close to purple in colour and uses berries to give it a distinctive winter warmth. We’ll have bottles available right up to Christmas along with 5L Mini-Kegs too, bet you can’t wait.
Tiny Rebel – Stay Puft Irish Cream 330ML Can & 9% ABV
The much anticipated Imperial Stay Puft Irish Cream Edition is finally ready to roll. This seasonal special includes warming Irish Cream alongside the normal roasted Marshmallows. Flavours of Coffee, Milk Chocolate & Vanilla all wrapped up in a bold 9% Porter, let’s hope the snow starts to fall real soon, this beer will warm up your toes extra quickly.
