Win Christmas Cheer!

Win Christmas Cheer!
Wed Dec 12 2012 by Crafty Pint

While the redoubtable Sir Cliff may have serenaded the world with the words that Christmas time is all about mistletoe and wine, we know it’s really about beer. Beery Christmas cheer. So with time running out until the big fella visits – and most of you, no doubt, yet to consider what you’re getting for your nearest and dearest – we thought we’d put together a roundup of some festive gift ideas from around the nation’s brewers and beer shops.

But before we launch into that, we have to bring you the chance to win a whole load of seasonal goodies courtesy of Smith Street Cellars. Admittedly, for interstaters it means visiting the Melbourne store in the next ten days, but with the prize hamper currently worth more than $3,200 it’s probably worth the trip.

To be in with a chance of winning this veritable treasure trove of beer, wine, spirits and vouchers, you need to spend $100 or more at Smith Street Cellars before midday on December 22. Your details wil go the metaphorical hat and be drawn at midday on the Saturday. As a taster of what you could win, the beer prizes include:

1 x Boatrocker Alpha Queen Carton
1 x 8 Wired ‘Haywired’ Carton
1 x Little Creatures Pale Ale Carton
1 x Moritz Lager Cans Carton
1 x Moon Dog Mixed Dozen Beers
1 x 2 Brothers Kung Foo 4pk
1 x Blanche De Namur 750ml
1 x Boneyard Brewing Golden Ale 6pk
1 x La Sirene Saison Noel 750ml
1 x Quilmes Lager 6pk
4 x Stone & Wood 500ml Pints
1 x Bridgeport Mixed 6pk
1 x Two Birds Golden Ale 6pk
3 X Holgate Empress 500ml
1 x Brooklyn Black Ops 570ml

Add to that a wide range of wines, bubbles, ciders, spirits, some Robot Ninja Sake and vouchers from the likes of 2 Brothers and Mountain Goat and you’re on to a winner. So, if you’re still to stock up for Christmas (or are just particularly thirsty), what are you waiting for?

Look out for our roundup of Christmas beery gifts later in the week. Or, if you’ve got something you’d like us to feature in it, send the details to
