To welcome Christmas’ fast approach (and potentially say goodbye to the wild ride that 2020 has been) Local Brewing Co have launched a dark but light-on-its-feet, holiday-inspired beer.
Gingerbread Brown Ale does present with plenty of ginger notes but it's joined plenty of pantry items too. There's nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice, combining with slight chocolate notes from the malt to quite fittingly capture a baked treat in a can. But there’s still a dryness to the beer too and the malts are there with restraint to allow it to remain a fitting release for a country that tends to spend Christmas Day in the blistering sun.
