The winner of the Champion Beer of Britain is Boltmaker brewed by Keighley brewery Timothy Taylor. The brewery has previously won the award four times for its well-known brew Landlord.
Timothy Taylor describes Boltmaker as a well-balanced, genuine Yorkshire Bitter, with a full measure of maltiness and hoppy aroma. Demand for this award-winning beer will increase rapidly as a result of this win.
Second place was Oakham Ales for Citra. The brewery is also a previous winner with JHB.
The final is judged eachyear during the first day of the Great British Beer Festival which is being held at London Olympia again this year.
