Britain’s best beer now being served

Rudgate Ruby Mild, officially Britain’s Champion Beer in 2009, is now being served.

At 4.4% and brewed in York, its does what its says on the pump clip – a rich ruby coloured mild beer, with perhaps a bit more body and alcohol than old style milds that were often below the 3.5% abv mark.

Roger Protz, famous beer writer and chair of the judges at the Great British Beer Festival said:

‘It’s a tremendous boost for the mild category. It’s good to see a classic British traditional beer making such a comeback in the age of golden ales and much paler beers in general. The judges were impressed by rich, fruity character, and the fact that it’s quite hoppy and bitter for a mild ale. Its victory should invigorate the whole mild ale category.’

I have just had a half myself and its on cracking form! Cheers
