Warwickshire Craft Beer Review: Cracker Barrel Plum Porter from Sperrin Brewery

Welcome to the Shed. I am even-star and this is The Beer in Review. Today's Warwickshire craft beer review is for Cracker Barrel Plum Porter from Sperrin Brewery.

Share It!

Cracker Barrel was a dark red bitter. The flavour was cherry rather than plum. Woody, boozy cherry brandy, a burnt caramel edge. Not particularly my style of beer. Sweet and it was fruit flavoured rather than fruity if you know what I mean.

Jade, the long suffering under appreciated barwoman at our favourite local, liked this one, while half a pint was more than enough for me. It is for sipping rather than quaffing. It would be rather nice with a sharp or stinky cheese as an alternative to port.

As you can see we are still working our way through the winter seasonals. I am not sure why it happens that all the Christmas beers come out AFTER Christmas. And also is it just our local where this happens? Let me know.
