Elland Brewery Wins Top Winter Beer Award


Elland Brewery’s 1872 Porter has been crowned Supreme Champion Winter Beer of Britain 2010 at the National Winter Ales Festival in Manchester.

Camra (the Campaign For Real Ale) describes the West Yorkshire beer as being creamy and full flavoured with hints of liquorice and chocolate.

Speaking to Camra about the winning brew, National Winter Ales Festival organiser Graham Donning said: “It has won many awards at Camra beer festivals in the past, and it’s great to see this small brewer achieving such success.

He went on to say that it was “a perfect winter warming remedy to the snowy weather in recent weeks”.

The 6.5 per cent ABV beer came second at last year’s competition but, this year, the silver medal went to Breconshire’s Ramblers Ruin, whilst bronze was won by Acorn’s Gorlovka Imperial Stout.

Elland Brewery produces a number of seasonal, special and regular beers. The company is brewing Angel Witch this month – a ruby red beer with a balance of malt and hop flavours.
