The cold dark nights are drawing in, and an evil is on the rise.
Yes that’s right, I’m talking about pumpkin beer.
I apologise if you’re a fan, but I simply can’t stand the stuff so I won’t be letting it anywhere near our boxes.
However we still have a humdinger of a beer selection for you to enjoy this Halloween and Bonfire Night.
Torrside are one of our favourite UK breweries, and their Monsters series delivers strong, often experimental beers made to the highest standards.
For this box we’ve chosen 12 of their biggest, boldest brews, packed full of warming winter flavours like toffee, whiskey and ginger – and an average ABV of almost 10%.
Highlights includes their classics Imperial Porter, With Strange Aeons Imperial Stout and the 2017 vintage of their American Barleywine, which is starting to age beautifully, and the box also includes plenty of new discoveries.
Here’s the full line up:
Power Stance: Peated Whiskey & Ginger Barley Wine – 12.5%
The Cake Is A Lie: Sticky Toffee Pudding Brown Ale – 11.0%
Take Me To Your Lemur: Madagascan Vanilla Barley Wine – 9.5%
