We've launched Proper Cracker, a limited-edition ruby IPA, just in time for Christmas.

Proper Cracker (4.3% abv) – an exciting festive twist based on our popular Cornish IPA, Proper Job - is the perfect pint for the festive season. 

Whether it’s a work party or a Christmas gathering with friends and family, this ruby beer is guaranteed to bring a festive feel to any occasion. Packed full of delicious hops including Cascade, Wolf and Aurora, Proper Cracker has delicious dark fruit and spice flavours but with a robust bitter backbone, resulting in a balanced drinkable beer.

Roger Ryman, our brewing director says: “Proper Cracker is a traditional seasonal beer with a modern IPA twist. It’s sessionable with enough dark fruit flavours and spice to bring warmth, even on the coldest December day. This beer is really going to get pub goers into the Christmas spirit.

“If you’re looking for a festive platter to enjoy alongside your beer, we would recommend mince pies served with all the trimmings.”

As part of the 2018 seasonal beer programme, Proper Cracker is now available in select pubs across the South West as well as Nicholson’s pubs nationwide.
