Christmas at Rebellion

22 November 2018

Xmas 1

Here's a little summary of all you need to know about Christmas at Rebellion.

 

Beer

The beer range for Christmas week this year is IPAPeacemakerGold and Roasted Nuts.

Beer Range

Peacemaker is our December monthly beer. 4.2%, Pale & Citrus full tasting note - click here.

Gold is the winter seasonal. Strength: 4.4%, Golden and Hoppy. Full tasting note - click here.

In 500ml bottles Roasted Nuts Extra is back in stock. Strong (5.8%), dark and malty, it is a perfect beer for Christmas. This is alongside Red and Blonde, our core bottled ales.

We also have our Lager in 330ml bottles, available to buy in cases or individually in our shop. Our authentic German style lager offers a crisp, clean and refreshing character, a great alternative to the heavier winter beers.

 

Winter Royal

Winter Royal

(Updated 13-12-12)

We are brewing Winter Royal again this year and due to its popularity, we are brewing twice the amount.

It will be available from pubs, bars etc. and in our brewery shop from the 1st of December.

In the shop we have more stock than ever before, and we think it will last for a few weeks, predicting it running out at the end of the week commencing 17th December,22/23rd. For exact timings it'll be worth keeping an eye on our website and social channels at the end of November.

The limited-edition beer will be available in fresh draught sizes; 1,3 litre bottles, 5 litre tins and 22 pint mini barrels.

For the first time in the Rebellion shop we will also be selling Winter Royal in 500ml bottles as part of mixed cases and gift sets.

Please like / follow our social channels to have the best chance of getting up to date info.

If you'd like to have a pint in a pub, you will be able to track which pubs and bars are stocking Winter Royal from our beer finder. We will also try and keep an up to date list on the beer's page. Please bear in mind the information we share only shows where we have delivered to, not who is currently serving it, so please contact them to check they are serving it before making a special trip.

Traditional Fuggles and  Goldings hop varieties add to the authenticity of this classic English beer. The result is a deep, ruby winter warmer at 5.4%, with a rich maltiness, soft bitterness and a fantastic late and dry hop aroma.

Why not more? Tankage capacity/usage is at such a critical point during the last week of Christmas that we just can't run with more than 4 different ales in order to maintain quality. We will therefore release Winter Royal earlier in December.  

If you're new to the brewery and don't know why we're excited about Winter Royal, here's what you've missed...

Before Rebellion even existed as a brewery, Winter Royal was brewed by the Wethereds Brewery in Marlow, becoming one of their flagship beers until the brewery closed in 1988. In December 2016 we got hold of the recipe and brewed a batch, reviving this famous beer after a 28 year hiatus.

 

Sampling

Free Beer Sampling - Please respect our 2 pint rule

From the tasting bar in our brewery shop you can pour yourself up to 2 pints or 4 halves of beer to sample for free, giving you the opportunity to try it before you buy it. We hope you'll enjoy your samples and maybe browse the other products in our shop.

Please enjoy our samples sensibly and if you can please respect our two-pint rule, we would really appreciate it. Thanks.

 

Shelf Life & Pre Orders 

Our draught beer is a fresh product and just like other fresh products like bread or milk it is best used as fresh as possible.

The draught beer has a shelf life of 7 days unopened and is best drunk within 2 days after opening, but fresh is best. This excludes the 22 pint mini barrel which will keep draught beer fresh for 3 weeks, even after opening.

For Christmas draught beer (excluding mini barrels) we'd recommend buying no earlier than 18th December.

Our bottled beers (500/330ml) have a longer shelf life and are best drunk within 6 months, though beer will always be best as fresh as possible.

There's no need to pre-order beer for Christmas as we try our very hardest to have our Christmas beers in stock throughout the period. If you feel you would really like to, please call the shop and we'll be happy to take your order.

 

Collections & Carry to Car

In the week leading up to Christmas you'll pick up your larger sizes of beer from the collections area outside of the front of the shop. First purchase your polycask or mini barrel inside as usual and then go outside to collect the barrel where our staff will give you a demo and then offer to carry it to your car.

 

Guest Tastings

Look out for guest tastings from some of our suppliers which will be taking place throughout December. You can find the list of dates here - /latest-news/latest-newsblogs/2018/november/christmas-guest-tasting-sessions.aspx

 

Online Shop

Our online shop sells fresh and bottled beer as well as merchandise, memberships, gift vouchers and clothing. The last day for online purchase for delivery before Christmas is Tuesday 18th December at 12pm. We will continue to ship after that date but can't guarantee that you'll get anything bought after that date before Christmas. 

 

Christmas Wine

Wine

From the 14th of December our wine tent will be up outside our shop.

Inside will be a selection of bottles that we've selected as great for Christmas, many of which are open for you to try. This is great opportunity to try some new wines and stock up for the festive season or choose a special something as a gift.

There will be more than just wines to sample, with sparkling wine, ports and dessert wines too. We'll also have some of our spirit range and local produce for you to try.

Christmas Mixed cases

Browse our mixed case deals. A range of cases with different selection including a case that contains all you need for Christmas Day, wine, bubbly and port.

The buy 12 get 13th free deal

Pudding wine and port selection

It's a special time of year and what a great opportunity to enjoy some dessert wines or port. We have a good selection for you to try.

 

Opening Hours & Car Parking

Getting closer to Christmas, our shop gets very busy. To avoid the crowds, we'd recommended coming early. We open at 8am.

Possible very busy periods could be 22nd 23rd 1-4pm and 24th 1-3pm.

Our car park gets full at peak time. If you are coming during the busy period for a beer sample, you could really help us out and try to limit the number of cars you are using.
