Britain's CAMRA apparently has a great idea for this Yule - start early. As part of their "Christmas Cheer With Beer" campaign they include suggestions for different meals including this one:
BREAKFAST: Smoked salmon and scrambled eggsI must be some sort of puritan as everyone knows that sherry and cake is the meal for first thing Christmas morning. I did picked up a few Christmas ales including the three large ones in this review from last year as well as another from St-Sylvestre. For the most part in Canada, however, Christmas beer means a macroblat newly labeled with a wreath added...not the kind of thing I am going to suggest for breakfast.
TRY: An English style wheat beer
WHY: The beer will complement the delicate flavour of the fish, but is not too hoppy as to overwhelm it.
RECOMMENDED: Meantime Wheat Grand Cru (Contact brewery for stockists) or O'Hanlon's Double Champion Wheat. (Available at Booths, Thresher and Majestic).
The good guys - for guys at the west end of the lake, that is - at Bar Towel have a story with plenty of links to holiday brew suggestions but there is only one actual Christmas reference in all the beers, Glenora Springs Yuletide Cherry Porter. I have had questions in the past about this brewery (thought I've had a better taste of their beer on tap at the Kingston Brew Pub) but I understand the brewery had those questions, too, and now it's is called Barley Days Brewery...and they still are making that cherry porter. Nice local branding. I look forward to finding this maybe actual honest to goodness Canadian Christmas ale and giving it a try.
