Christmas comes but once a year and to celebrate, Sheffield’s Stancill Brewery has produced a trio of seasonal festive specials to enjoy by the fireside in your local, bringing together flavours from Christmas past, present and future!
Blizzard is features the classic characteristics of everything that’s great about a Stancill brew; a smooth, sweet and malty pale ale which is golden in colour and complimented with a creamy white head. If you do happen to get stuck in a blizzard, this is what you would want in your belly to warm you up!
Meanwhile, Red Velvet is a the epitome of a festive brew. Rich, fully flavoured and full bodied. The strong spicy and winter berry notes are contrasted with milk chocolate and cocoa – all the scents of Christmas rolled into one! With an ABV of 6.0% it’s guaranteed to keep Jack Frost away from your door and fill you with festive spirit.
In stark contrast, Mistletoe is arguably one of the most unusual beers produced by Stancill Brewery. The pale, hoppy beer is refreshing with hints of lime and citrus flavours. A cheeky beer, filled with festive cheer. One kiss of your glass and you’re sure fall in love with it. Did we mention it’s also a festive green colour?
Stancill’s range of festive beers will be available at selected pubs across the city throughout December including The Horse & Jockey and Norfolk Arms. And if that wasn’t a good enough reason to celebrate Christmas with a Stancill beer, don’t forget CAMRA members will receive a 20% discount, making a pint of Stancill beer just £2.00 a pint.
How’s that for spreading good festive cheer?!
On behalf of all the Stancill Brewery team, we’d like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and happy and enjoyable 2017.
