'Tis the season to be drinking

When Christmastime comes, we all have our favourite poisons. Mine is Roasted Nuts from Rebellion Beer. Sure, I enjoy mulled wine now and again, but I truly am a beer drinker and this is my beer for Christmas. I start drinking it as soon as it is available, in fact I drink it through the winter, as it or through what the English people call winter. But especially at Christmas. It is my poison of the season, available in many pubs around the South East. There was a stand from Rebellion Beer yesterday at the local outdoor Christmas market and they were serving some of their products for free, including a new seasonal ale, which was all right, but I truly went to the stand for the Roasted Nuts sample. And more, as they kept refilling my glass. Again and again. The guy serving me explained that it was pointless keeping the beers in the barrels and it was for us all to enjoy. I love the attitude of this microbrewery, their generosity very much in the spirit of Christmas.

That sounds so great. With the alcohol regulations over here, that would never happen. And I miss proper pubs.
