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.

CAMRA can proudly announce that Green Jack Brewing’s Baltic Trader has won the overall Gold Champion Bottled Beer of Britain.
Green Jack Brewing’s Baltic Trader
The 2023 Champion Bottled Beer of Britain award went to Green Jack’s Baltic Trader (10.5% ABV). Judges described the Extra Strong Export Stout as ruby black with a stunning oyster head. It had dark roast, black treacle and currants on the nose with alcohol and a very rich smooth mouthfeel. Dry black chocolate, hints of cherry, caramelised fruits and a growing bitter roasty finish that is sweet and lingering. A beer to be savoured.
The well-deserved runners up included Dhustone Stout (4.3%) by Hobsons Brewery who scooped silver and McGregor’s Mild (3.8%) by Five Kingdoms Brewery took home the bronze award.
