York Brewery seasonal favourite Snowflake is returning to bars this winter, thanks to the business’s new owner Black Sheep.
The 3.7% ABV golden ale combines two American hops from the Pacific North West, offering a citrus punch with a crisp, clean taste.
Taking its place in the festive line up alongside Snowflake is Black Sheep’s own Christmas beer, Blitzen. The 4.0% ABV ruby cask beer features Cascade and Goldings hops, plus light and dark Muscovado sugar. Its complex, malty taste is driven by a mix of pale, crystal and pale chocolate malts, with a hint of citrus and mixed peel.
Jo Theakston, sales and marketing director at Black Sheep Brewery, said: “One of the first questions we were asked when we acquired York Brewery was whether Snowflake would be back in pubs at Christmas and I am delighted to give beer drinkers the present they wanted!
“Snowflake is a much-loved beer, which, along with Blitzen, takes pride of place in our seasonal calendar to give customers a greater variety of tastes and experiences when they visit the pub this Christmas.”
