With the evenings now much darker and the mornings colder, the feeling of Christmas getting closer and closer is palpable. Shop windows bursting with festive paraphernalia where shimmering baubles hang from snow covered trees and model trains whizz around beneath. The stars in the night sky complemented by their celestial counterparts on the ground; brightly coloured, flickering lights adorn windows, doors and gardens.

As the days count down it's time to start writing your Christmas list or perhaps think about what to get your partner, family member or friend as a gift this year.

It can be difficult to buy beer as a present or have it bought for you when the lack of clear vegan labelling can make shopping quite a challenge. Thankfully below is a list of some of the finest vegan beer Christmas gifts available.

Brass Castle Crowler Club Gift Pack Membership

Brass Castle Crowler Club Gift Pack Membership (£50.00)

Brass Castle Brewery now based in Malton, Yorkshire began life in a garage on Brass Castle Hill in Pocklington back in 2011. They're a vegan-friendly brewery producing a diverse range of beer styles from their popular Bad Kitty - a vanilla porter - to their Munich-style Helles Lager. The Crowler Club was successfully crowdfunded in May 2017 allowing 1.67 pints of freshly-poured beer to be sealed in a large can (known as a crowler) and delivered direct from the Brass Castle Taphouse. Brass Castle's Crowler Club Gift Pack Membership gives the recipient one year's full membership of the Crowler Club, complete with a gift pack of three filled crowlers.
