AND A HOPPY CHRISTMAS TO YOU TOO!
Rod Jones, The Old Brewery’s on-site brewer shares his tips for a Beer Lovers’ Christmas menu.
To start off the day’s celebrations, a glass of Meantime’s cloudy, golden-orange Bavarian-style Wheat Beer with its moderately dense white head and zesty aromas provides a beautiful accompaniment to a light, elegant smoked salmon starter.
The full bodied hoppy nature of the India Pale Ale would be an ideal match for a fine turkey and would also stand up to the sharpness of the cranberry sauce. Its unusual, slick bottle would also look far more interesting on the Christmas Dinner table than a bottle of wine!
Meantime’s rich and rewarding Chocolate Porter-style Ale blossoms with rich fruity desserts so is a perfect match for Christmas pudding.
Meantime beers available from Sainsbury’s and good independent retailers nationwide.
