As December first rears its head, we thought we'd help you out with a little round up a la Ho-Ho Hop Hideout's beery Christmas gift guide. Christmas jumpers at the ready, barleywine on the side....
Now becoming a firm Christmas favourite here at Hop Hideout is Wiper & True's Plum Pudding Porter. An all round festive staple. Perfect on its own as a stocking filler, or buy a few to accompany in a gift box. Who doesn't like a bit of rich fruity dark beer sipping alongside a warm fire.
There's a limited run of our Northern Monk Brew Co x Tom J Newell Watermelon Crush Tees available in store. Even if you didn't get to try the beer (tart, earthy watermelon, pucker-tastic) Tom's artwork is seriously good.
For those awkward people, who know exactly what they like or prefer to choose the beer themselves - go for a gift card. You can start from as little as £5.00. Inside the card our message reads 'Good people deserve good beer vouchers'. Awwwwww.
This newly published home brew book focuses on equipment, set up, brewing process and provides 50 recipes from the hot list of global breweries from The Kernel to Omnipollo, Mikkeller & more. Beautifully printed & great photography inside the pages. We get a little mention in the book too at the back! (We provided the Omnipollo beer for the photo shoot).
If beer & food is more of your thing try this book from Julia Herz (US Brewers Association) & Gwen Conley. It manages to partner technical information with food & beer pairing menu building suggestions in a really informative way.
Call in to Hop Hideout to talk to us if you're not sure, we're always happy to suggest present ideas.
Why not have a beer at the same time *wink wink*
