Christmas Bitter has a fruity aroma and distinct flavor of Crystal malt and English East Kent Golding hops. It is dry and balanced with an alluring and soft bitter finish. Dugges wish you a merry Christmas!
For Christmas, most breweries, as do we, go dark. You have your Stouts, Porters, Wee Heavy's and whatnot. Usually, all of them are pretty big too. Double digit ABV isn't uncommon. So for this, we wanted to go the opposite way, while still keeping it classic. We went with a Best Bitter in traditional (semi) low ABV-style. A beer variety we really enjoy here at the brewery. So what makes it Christmas then? Well, the name, doesn't it?
