25 October - Winter Warmer Special

The White Cross saw the welcome return to the tradition of having a Winter Warmer Launch Breakfast for the brewing team and staff, as well as a few of the regulars, who always enjoy the return of a great winter beer. This is testament to the hard work put in by Alex and Debbie and the White Cross staff, in making the pub such a great place to visit and share.

For those not in the know, the pub opens early and provides a full English breakfast to go with a few pints of the new Winter Warmer. Music is provided, this year by Paul Bowen and his mix of blues and Celtic riffs.

The picture above was from a couple of years back, but you get the feel.. we'll see what state the pictures and I are in today..!

The details, below, are from the Wells & Young's website...

Young's Winter Warmer (5.0% ABV)

Available throughout Winter 2007/08 (25 October 2007 – Jan 2008) Winter Warmer is the definitive winter beer and is a long-time Young’s favourite. A champion cask ale and Gold Medal Winner at the Brewing Industry International Awards 1992 and 1998, Winter Warmer is an essential warmer during the winter months.

“Rich, ruby-coloured beer, almost red in bright light. Complex fruity nose with hints of candy. Luscious and full-bodied, with a powerful mouth-coating flavour leading to a bittersweet, vinous finish.”

Winter Warmer is 100% malt brew, with Maris Otter and Crystal malt combining Fuggle and Golding hops. Young’s unique cane sugar mix is added to the copper during the brewing process.

A welcome sight on the bar during the winter months, Winter Warmer delivers consistently high yields and, in common with other Young’s ales, is quick to drop bright (usually within 24 hours).

Looks and sounds devine. I don't know that I would have it early in the day with breakfast though!
