If you’re stumped on what to fill a loved one’s stocking with, get yourself down to the Discount Supermarket on Whitchurch Road.
“What are you talking about? I’m not filling my Dad’s stocking with bargain baked beans or cheap cheddar.”
I understand your confusion, but this supermarket is more lovingly known as The Magic Beer Shop. With Cardiff’s widest range of beers and ales there’s something there fore everyone. From craft beers to real ales, from German beers to the fine ales of Wales, they stock hundreds from all over the world.
Ali, the beer manager, kindly gave me a quick Christmas guide to some of the festive beers they are stocking this season.
Ridgeway Bad Elf
A wonderful twist on a more traditional Christmas beer. This is a golden ale with citrus undertones, a very drinkable mild Christmas drop. Not a typical Christmas beer but very enjoyable.
St Peters Christmas Ale
A more traditional style Christmas beer with many fruity and berry flavours that will go perfectly with many a Christmas meal. Rich and flavoursome.
Wood’s Christmas Cracker
A mild beer with undertones of rich chocolate malt. Smooth and drinkable. With flavours of nuts, it definitely tastes like a warm winter beer.
Discount Supermarket is located at 97-99 Whitchurch Road and is open 8am-10pm through Chrismas.
