The founders of the campaign hope to encourage the nation to support their local businesses including breweries, pubs and bars throughout this usually challenging month.
Take a look at some of the top-rated UK craft beers for you to look out for in the month of January. Make sure to ask your barman for recommendations as well, as it could well just take you out of your comfort zone into hoppy new heights.
1) Bude Brewery, Summerleaze
This golden ale produced in our local town of Bude has deep biscuit flavours and a lovely honey aftertaste. This premium golden ale offers very easy drinking. Best enjoyed chilled on or off the beach.
2) Magic Rock, Salty Kiss
This fruit-infused beer is flavoured with sea buckthorn and sea salt, which whilst giving it a distinctive flavour, doesn’t overshadow the taste. This drink is certainly great for the inner seafarer in all of us.
3) Beavertown, Gamma Ray
A hoppy pale ale with a slightly bitter finish and definite fruity and herbal notes. This drink has a smooth finish and is very drinkable. The perfect accompaniment to a meet-up with friends, having alongside a meal and if you’re looking for a drink that’s not too heavy.
4) Ballast Point, Nitro Red Velvet
This stand-out beer is a unique shade of red with vanilla, cherry and white chocolate overtones. If you don’t have a sweet tooth, fear not, it certainly isn’t as sweet as it sounds. If you’re the adventurous sort, this could be worth giving a try.
5) Leeds Brewery, Midnight Bell
A dark, ruby-hued beer combining a slight bitterness with chocolate and roasted malt overtones. The Leeds Brewery was launched in 2007 by two former employees who have since opened seven pubs; such is the popularity of their product and service.
6) Bristol Beer Factory, Milk Stout
This sweet-smelling beer has made its way into our good books with its smooth, sweet offering with very little bitterness. Perfect to enjoy by a roaring fire whilst keeping out of the cold.
So why not have a go this January and visit your local pubs whilst they’re quiet to try some of the delicious beers, ales and lagers they have on offer?
