Win! A case of three bottles of Dark Festive Bitter from Farr Brewery in Harpenden

Christmas is a time for giving - so we’re running our own 12 Days of Christmas giveaway and online charity raffle.

We always aim to help you make the best of life in Hertfordshire, and that extends to your Christmas shopping, so we want to encourage you to buy your gifts locally this year.

To do this, we’ve teamed up with several Hertfordshire businesses, each of which has donated some wonderful prizes to show you just what Herts has to offer. There’s a different prize to win every day from December 1 until December 11 (details for how to enter are below) and then on December 12 we’re doing a charity raffle to win ALL of the previous prizes!

To enter this special raffle, all you’ll have to do is make a small donation to our JustGiving page. We’ll be raising funds for Age UK Hertfordshire, a brilliant charity which provides vital services for older people across the county - you might have been made more aware of them recently thanks to the John Lewis ‘Man on the Moon’ advert. We’ll give more details about this closer to the 12th.

Yesterday we gave you the chance to win a spa and afternoon tea for two package from Luton Hoo Hotel and Spa. We’ve picked our winner at random and we can now reveal the winner is:

@LawnriteHitchin, who entered on Twitter. Congratulations to him.

Here are the details for today’s special giveaway:

Day Eleven

Win! A case of three bottles of Dark Festive Bitter from Farr Brewery in Harpenden

We first told you about Farr Brewery back in October after it became Harpenden’s first brewery in almost 100 years. They’ve since completed a successful crowdfunding campaign, raising money to expand their premises and increased their production, which has cemented their place in the community and means they are now funded by some of the county’s beer fans.

They’ve had a good year for awards, winning Fastest Selling Beer at the St Albans Beer Festival 2015 and getting runner-up at both Best Local Producer in the St Albans Food and Drink Awards and Hertfordshire Beer of the Year.

The team at Farr has kindly donated a 3-bottle pack of their Christmassy beer, Most Festive by Farr, which is an ale that has been hand-crafted to combine the festive flavours of treacle, vanilla, ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg to produce a beer fit for the season.

To enter, simply do any (or all) of the following:

* Sign up to our helpful weekly newsletter by emailing ‘sign up’ to

* Retweet our giveaway tweet on Twitter - it will be the pinned tweet

* Comment on our giveaway post on Facebook telling us who in the world you’d most like to share a beer with - it will be the post pinned to the top of our page.
