Anspach & Hobday are staging their annual Christmas concert at The Arch House, Bermondsey, on 1st December, and there will be seasonal beers, too.
Among the beers on offer at the brewery taproom will be seasonal festive favourite The Pfeffernüsse Stout and a new brew, a spiced ale called A Christmas Pale.
The event takes place from 3pm, with songs from 7pm. Patrons will be able to sample the annual Christmas brews along with mince pies, festive cheer, and a selection of kegs from deep within the Anspach & Hobday archives.
The brewers have held their annual Christmas Carols since the brewery was established in 2014, making this the ninth event held at the brewery. Anspach & Hobday have worked with Matt The List to find the finest voices of our time, and he will be leading the choir and crowd through verse after verse.
The Pfeffernüsse Stout is Anspach & Hobday’s original Christmas beer, and is inspired by the traditional tasty German Christmas ‘peppernut’ biscuit of the same name. The seasonal special brings together a rich, malty stout with the perfect blend of festive spice. Ginger and cinnamon dominate the nose, with biscuity malts and warming spices joining on the palate.
For those who prefer a lighter beer, A Christmas Pale is a delicately spiced festive pale ale, with aromas of ginger, spicy orange, and citrusy hops.
