Real ale for real mums

If your mum knows her beer then we’ve got the perfect Mother’s Day gift for her. A choice of delicious beers to suit every palate, ranging from ales with floral tones and hints of honey to beers with darker flavours and fruity undertones. They can be bought as part of a gift pack, 12-bottle case or why not pair it with a special meal to really spoil her rotten.

So, if you’re looking to treat her then here’s our Mother’s Day gift ideas, our best-loved beers with the perfect meal suggestion for you to cook them with.

Lushingtons: Bursting with fruit, within its bittersweet scent you’ll pick up lime and mango with a little lychee. To top it all off its creamy texture contains a slight strawberry finish. Enjoy with white meats or fish dishes.

Porthleven: Straw-coloured and zesty with strong citrus aromas. Starting with a zip of lemon and lime in the mouth and ending with a flash of passion fruit. Brings out the best in spicy food and smoked meats.

Hops ‘n’ Honey: Floral beneath a delicate, spicy tangerine scent with a touch of toffee. It’s the perfect introduction to fine ale as it expertly balances both bitter and sweet flavours.  Great with game, sausages or her favourite chocolate fudge sundae.

Penny Come Quick: This deep dark, smooth drinking Cornish milk stout is packed with deep flavours and your nose will pick up coffee and chocolate while your tongue will be treated to a bitter-sweetness with a touch of the florals. Try it with oysters, cured meats and the any dark chocolate.

If your cooking is not up to much, it’s a good excuse to push the boat out and take her to a local pub or restaurant to enjoy herself. You can find out where you can sample our ales here.

For our mums who are expert when it comes to beer, either brewers like our very own head brewer Paola or beer connoisseurs who love to explore the ingredients, we have the perfect mother’s day present that’s a little out of the ordinary.

Whatever you do this Mother’s Day don’t opt for a box of chocolates or some last-minute flowers. Give her something that shows you know she’s a real beer mother.

At Skinner’s this year we’ll all be raising a glass (or two) to all the mums out there. And we’ll be giving gifts that let mums really kick-back, relax and enjoy their Mother’s Day.
