There's a swing-top, too, for Belgian-style Bede's Chalice (9%) and the brewer's 20th anniversary Imperial pale stout 1994 (10.2%) • A new Belgian-made beer has been created — for dogs. Snuffle Dog Beer is non-alcoholic, of course, and is brewed with beef or chicken stock and malt barley extracts, plus mineral oils. It comes in 25cl bottles and in four packs • Fresh off the bottling line at BrewDog are festive brews Hoppy Christmas (7.2% ABV) and Santa Paws (4.5%). The former is a hop bomb with citrus, papaya and pineapple notes, and the latter a decadent Scotch ale brewed with heather honey. Also new in bottle is Konnichiwa Kitsune, a citrus-packed double IPA. It is a Japanese-inspired, yuzu-infused imperial IPA, brewed with Amarillo, Cascade and Citra hops • Brews from Hammerton Brewery, Little Beer, and Anspach & Hobday have been added to the listings at online retailer EeBria, along with Yarde Ciders, from Devon.
