Today we visit England for our Advent beer pick, specifically Wells and Young’s Brewing Company where in the past I’ve featured both their Christmas Ale and Christmas Pudding Ale. However this year the featured beer is their Young’s Winter Warmer.
Winter Warmer is the definitive winter beer and is a long-time Young’s favourite.
Winter Warmer is 100% malt brew, with Maris Otter and Crystal malt combining Fuggle and Golding hops. Young’s unique cane sugar mix is added to the copper during the brewing process.
A welcome sight on the bar during the winter months, Winter Warmer is the ideal beer to cosy up with in front of a pub fire on a cold winter’s night.
British holiday beers always bring to mind Dickens’ A Christmas Carol for me; “There were more dances, and there were forfeits, and more dances, and there was cake, and there was negus, and there was a great piece of Cold Roast, and there was a great piece of Cold Boiled, and there were mince-pies, and plenty of beer.” Cheers!
