For those who like beers with different tastes Huddersfield is certainly the place to be this week. At least 3 of it's flagship pubs have beers on the bar that will appeal to those looking for something a little different. Not as would be expected at this time of year, the dark Xmas pudding, or spiced ale - but fruity and unusual.
The Grove has Ginger Explosion from Bridge of Allan and Chocwork Orange from Brentwood.
The Star provides Big Ginger from Boggart, Chocolate Orange Stout from Sawbridgeworth, and should you want a Xmas style beer, Nobby's brewery Santas Secret. They have also just had the juniper flavoured Suju brewed by Thornbridge.
The Rat and Ratchet however has different flavours. A Strawberry flavoured bitter by Fernandes and Greenmill Twilight, a chocolate wheat beer are on the bar, and on the beers to come board is Saltaire Hazelnut Coffee Porter. There is also a Naylors Kriek beer on the beers to come.
The Head of Steam has also got in on the act with the superb Coach House Blueberry, a beer not to be missed . If you do, Sam at The Star tells me she has bottles of it available.
If you want something different get there soon, they won't last long.
