Adding spices to beer is an age-old practice that infuses depth and character into your favourite brew.
While hops and malt create the beer’s backbone, spices can add a festive twist that tantalises the taste buds. The key is balance – a harmonious marriage of beer and spice that doesn’t overpower the drinker but instead enhances the overall experience.
To kick off our spiced beer adventure, we turn to the Cranborne Poacher, a rich and full-bodied beer that provides the ideal canvas for our Christmas spiced beer. The beer’s robust flavours, with hints of wild fruits and liquorice, pair seamlessly with warm Christmassy spices.
Optional: a shot of dark rum per serving

Badger’s Cranborne Poacher serves as the ideal foundation, allowing the spices to dance across your palate without overshadowing the beer’s unique qualities.
The orange slices provide a citrusy brightness, complemented by the earthy warmth of cinnamon and cloves. The star anise adds a subtle liquorice note, while the nutmeg contributes a hint of sweetness. The result is a well-balanced and nuanced Christmas spice beer that’s perfect for sipping by the fireplace or sharing with loved ones.
