Winter is coming (if it’s not already here), and we are looking forward to cosying up next to the nearest fireplace with some of these brews you can pick up at the market:
Fellowship Porter from Redemption Brewing
A stalwart choice in the sea of dark beers, the Fellowship Porter is a wonderful beer to toast the festive season with. This is another brew we are huge fans of served on cask, but it’s mighty tasty in bottle as well.
Pfeffernusse Saison from Anspach & Hobday
If you thought saisons were only for summer, this Christmas brew from Anspach & Hobday may change your mind. Based on the German spiced biscuits, cloves and nutmeg play with sweet malt for this medium-bodied brew that’s Christmas in a bottle.
London Smoke from The Five Points Brewing Company
The Five Points’ London Smoke is as deep and fathomless as a winter’s night. Tobacco leaf, liquorice, dark chocolate and light smokiness similar to a bonfire at a distance make up the complex flavours in this imperial smoked porter. It’s a fireside favourite.
Nightwatchman from East London Brewing Company
This chestnut-hued ale is a thing of beauty on cask. Profoundly well-balanced with notes of dark caramel, the Nightwatchman is supremely easy-drinking and a great one to enjoy as a session ale through the winter weeks in a cosy pub or the snug confines of your home.
Orange & Chocolate Stout from Brew By Numbers
Brewed with cacao nibs and the aromatic zest of Seville Oranges, this tasty little number from Brew By Numbers is sure to be a hit with any fan of this classic flavour pairing. Have it alongside a chocolate dessert this season for an extra hit of tasty!
Neu from Orbit Beers
Orbit’s Neu is an altbier based on a style hailing from Düsseldorf. Amber in colour, this is a lovely beer with toasty, nutty and biscuity flavours and a crisp, dry finish. It pairs well with the festive foodstuffs found this time of year.
Pentonville Oyster Stout from Hammerton Brewery
Hammerton Brewery is carrying on the tradition of their namesake with this wonderful beer. Fresh Maldon oysters are used in the brew for the Pentonville Oyster Stout, resulting in a smooth stout featuring slight salty notes from the oysters and sweet notes from the dark malts.
Northern Latitude Winter Ale from Fourpure Brewing Company
For fans of hops, this seasonal brew from Fourpure is an American red rye ale with an assertively citrusy, spicy hop character. Available in cans, it’s a delicious ale that is a perfect pal to take along to your next Christmas or New Year’s Eve party.
Heavy Water from Beavertown Brewery
A sour cherry and sea salt stout isn’t something often in a brewery’s repertoire, but we’re glad that Heavy Water is a beer the folks at Beavertown create! Additionally brewed with muscovado sugar and Chinook hops, this is a unique beer you should definitely get your hands on.
These are just some of the beers you can find from the 26 different breweries featured at London Brewers’ Market on Saturday, the 28th of November! Be sure to join us and Independent Label Market from 11am until 6pm and Old Spitalfields Market.
