Chew on this: a fictional Yorkshire beer which starred in a hit US crime series in 2011 is now being brewed every year for Christmas… it’s Theakston’s Christmas Ale.

Billed as, “A rich festive ale with cinnamon, raisins and a hint of walnut,” this seasonal real ale almost needs a spoon and a fork to consume it. And it is hugely popular. Theakston’s go on to describe their Christmas Ale as, “An outstanding rich, fruity, dark and mellow ale – just like liquid Christmas pudding!”

You can read the history of this once a year real ale on the Theakston website.
