Win! A Case of Six Christmas Beers from Best of British Beer!

'Tis the season to be jolly (well, almost), and there's nothing jollier than drinking a wintery, festive beer to warm your cockles. Especially if it has a Christmassy name, and even more especially if that Christmassy name is an excellent pun.

Remember when we reviewed six just such Christmas beers a couple of weeks ago? And then we reviewed six more? Well, they were all featured in Best of British Beer Christmas gift cases, and I've been lusting after them, thirstily, ever since.

Although they do have straight-up cases of Christmas beers - they do a three, six and twelve-pack which start from £15.50, and are brilliant - what really excites me about them is their more unusual offerings. In particular, I love the Ding Dong Magnum (a magum of beer! Amazing!) at £21.50 and the case of nine beers in a pretty nordic-themed wooden crate for £38.50.

I love what this company is doing for so many reasons, but none more so than this: they also have a monthly beer club, where you'll get sent a case of different beers (some of which are completely exclusive to the club) every month for either 3, 6 or 12 months. WANT.

Well, amongst all this Christmas shopping in this 'time for giving', it's easy to forget yourself. But Best of British Beer has decided it's time one of YOU gets a lovely gift: a case of six of their Christmas beers!

Featuring some really dark, strong beers like Bad Santa from Backyard Brewhouse through to the zingy pale Hollydaze from Oldershaws in Lincolnshire, you're bound to discover a new favourite or two. And entry is both easy and free! Double trouble.
