Wetherspoons do Christmas

If you are a lover of Christmas beers and are having problems finding some to satisfy your craving this year, then may be a trip to you local 'Spoons will solve the problem. This year there are 50 festive beers on offer in what is effectively a mini beer festival.

The list is sourced from around the whole of the country with offerings from Scotland and Wales as well as England, with a combination of old favourites and beers that are new to me. I have sampled a few and fortunately for me, none have had the spicy, fruity taste I usually associate with the festive season.

There are plenty to go at, but as is usual with Wetherspoons festivals, not all are available at once, so its luck of the draw as to what you find, and where you find it.

Problem is, a bar full of rich, dark ales doesn't really offer a balanced selection. And, although it doesn't fit that description, is Moorhouses Blonde Witch really a Christmas ale?

Maybe you were unlucky, on my last visit to our local 'spoons, there were 2 light and 1 mid brown beer on the bar,none tasting of Xmas fortunately!!.Think it may be luck of the draw, what you get and when you get it
