Champion Bottled Beer of Britain
About the Award
The Champion Bottled Beer of Britain Award goes to the very best beer dispensed from a bottle rather than a traditional cask hand pull.
The judging took place for the first time ever virtually with all the competition beers being sent to judges for a blind judging session, following a series of local member voting rounds and regional judging competitions throughout the year. If you would like to taste this years winners and runners up you can sample the beers with our latest Good Beer Box and join an online tasting with beer expert Christine Cryne.

Hogsback’s A over T
The 2020 Champion Bottled Beer of Britain award went to Hogsback’s A over T (9.0% ABV). A Over T is Hogsback’s only bottle conditioned beer. It is a deep tawny beer made with high quality pale and crystal malts from English malted barley, with Kent Goldings hops added for bitterness and aroma, and Bramling Cross hops to further enhance the character. This results in deep, complex flavours of sultanas, orange peel and plums, and a rich lingering finish
Runners up include Durham Brewery with their Temptation (10% ABV) taking second place and Harvey’s Imperial Extra Double Stout (9% ABV) taking third.
