Classic bitter named best beer in UK

A full flavoured, classic bitter has been crowned the best beer in Britain.

Timothy Taylor's Boltmaker beat beers from microbrewers and regional firms to win the accolade.

The West Yorkshire brewed ale was judged the Supreme Champion by the Campaign for Real Ale at its annual festival in London.

Timothy Taylor's head brewer Peter Eells said: "We work very hard to produce great beers and we really believe this is the best beer we can brew, so to have it acknowledged in such an important competition is absolutely fantastic."

Managing director Charles Dent added: "It's our favourite, it's the brewers' favourite, it's the beer that you drink if you're drinking with us and it's named after one of our favourites pubs - The Boltmakers."
