A winter ale brewed with spices
Spice things up with Firecracker
They say variety is the spice of life, and Firecracker certainly brings a whole new drinking experience to the bar. Brewed with a secret blend of real spices, this Gales seasonal is one to light up dark winter evenings.
Available in November, Firecracker starts the countdown to Christmas early – using mulling spices associated with the festive period. There’s a delicate touch of cinnamon in there, and some star anise too. We could tell you the rest, but then it wouldn’t be a secret recipe any more…
A rich, tawny ale, Firecracker combines a blend of malts with subtle spices for a complex yet not-too-sweet palate. Soft-fruit flavours and hints of orange come from the Gales yeast, bringing the beer to a satisfying, warming finish.

A silky-smooth premium ale, Horndean Special Bitter was originally the flagship beer of Gales Brewery in Hampshire. First launched in 1959, it’s still brewed with the same passion and pride today – and the age-old recipe continues to go down a storm.
Something completely different
