Since then, Peticolas Brewing Company has won many awards for their beers. Brewery tours are available, but only for four hours per month, so if you’re interested in seeing where these delicious brews are made, you’ll want to plan ahead. The perfect brew for the winter here is Wintervention. It is a dark and strong winter ale with spices like cinnamon, ginger and allspice. They use English hops, good quality malts and get the spices from a local spice maker.
