Santa Claus is coming… to brew

Good morning beer lovers! We can now reveal the special guest we recently welcomed to the brewery to be Santa Claus himself. We were delighted he could join us along with two of his elves to brew their own beer on the Craft Beer Kitchen – and since it’s not every day that a seasonal sensation such as Santa visits your workplace, we were thrilled to capture his brew experience on film too. (Thanks Brendan!)

Here’s what Santa had to say: “Stewart Brewing is a great place to visit. There’s plenty of space to park your sleigh, a huge range of gift-appropriate beers in the shop and the staff are really helpful. I enjoyed Stewart’s classic 80/- during our Craft Beer Kitchen brew and the team even treated Brudolf to a handful of chocolate malt. Highly recommended.”

Everyone had a great time and Santa’s Jingle All The IPA was a winner amongst the brewery staff as well as Santa and his elves. After a couple of pints the festive legend was keen to help spread more craft beer cheer this Christmas, so we’ve set up a competition. To be in with the chance of winning a brew session for you and three friends on the Craft Beer Kitchen, simply share our video of Santa’s brewing experience on Facebook, Twitter or Youtube using #CraftBeerSanta between Nov 25 and Dec 6.

We’d love to know what you think of our wee festive video too – does it give the big department stores and supermarkets a run for their money? Have a watch below and leave us a comment with your thoughts.

You can find full terms and conditions for the competition on our website.

With thanks to MacNeill Photograhy and Santa Services.
