A beer brewed in West Yorkshire was named the best beer in Britain.
At the Great Beer Festival in Olympia, London, Timothy Taylor’s Boltmaker was awarded the massively important crown. The Campaign For Real Ale – CAMRA – judged that the Keighley brewed real ale was the finest pint for 2014.
The silver medal was awarded to Oakham Citra, from Peterborough, and the Bronze went to Salopian, Darwin’s Origin from Shropshire. This year’s beer festival was described by CAMRA as Britain’s Biggest Pub.
The champion beer competition which was organised by CAMRA took a year for tasters to select.
About 55 thousand thirsty people went to the Festival to try out the various brews made by British brewers. According to stats from CAMRA, 30% of the featured beers were from London-based breweries making it the steepest rise in new brewery openings of anywhere in the UK.
Fullers have brewed beer at their Chiswick site for over 350 years. It is a working site, brewing world famous award winning beers such as London Pride, ESB and Chiswick bitter,
Fifteen different beers from London were available at the Great British Beer Festival. They were from Tottenham, Hackney, Battersea and Twickenham.
