Christmas Day beer, Barney's Red Rye

Barney Beer Red Rye
And so to what is possibly the Campbell Beer of 2012, certainly December.

Barney's Beer Red Rye was a Hippo Beers recommends, and a Christmas present from my daughter.

Maybe it was the spirit of Christmas, maybe it was the joy of fresh pine needles sticking into my socks, but I loved the colour, the fulfilling taste, the bottle, the label. I loved that it was 100% natural so obviously it's good for me. And good for you, too. I loved that it was from a wee microbrewery in Edinburgh.

But most of all, I loved that my wife went in to the beer shop, explained she was after something special for her special guy, told them what beers I liked, and the staff there went straight to this one.
