Deck the halls and all that, it's December and the holiday season is just round the corner. As has become trad', we here at GADDS' have been brewing up a sturdy ruby ale for you to enjoy with your kin, and with your tofurkey (with all the trimmings).
Crystal barley malt, and some crystalised malted rye, bring a deep warming colour and festive red berry character to the beer, whilst a team of Kentish hops, led by Bramling Cross, add the fresh green contrast. It's a comforting ale, capable of driving the damp away and leaving you with a jolly glow.
We're launching Little Cracker at the Taproom tomorrow afternoon, with GADDZUKES providing the seasonal carols, and our dear friend Chutney Paul the Xmas curries. It's an unticketed celebration so just show up anytime from 12:30 to 3pm. Or go the whole nut roast and book yourself on a morning brewery tour to whet the appetite.
If you can't make it tomorrow don't panic: you'll find this fine celebration of the Yule in all self-respecting East Kent alehouses over the next few weeks, and you'll be able to order it here for home delivery in 10 or 20 litre polypins.
