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.
Judging for the Champion Bottled Beer of Britain 2022 competition is scheduled to take place at Coventry Beer Festival on the 6th & 7th of May 2022
The judging will be back to in-person after a series of regional judging rounds taking place virtually with all the competition beers being sent to judges for blind judging sessions.
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.
