THE HOGS Back Brewery has added to its trophy cabinet after being presented with CAMRA’s Champion Bottled Beer of Britain award by members of its local branch.
Hogs Back won the award for A over T, its nine per cent ABV bottle-conditioned barley wine, which was judged the best bottle-conditioned beer in the country after a judging process by a panel of beer experts.
The beer won judges’ votes for its rich, complex flavours and aromas, which give the beer its full name of Aromas over Tongham.
Rupert Thompson, Hogs Back Brewery managing director, said: "We’re delighted to receive this lovely trophy which will take pride of place at the brewery, for A over T’s fans to enjoy. It’s a wonderful beer and it’s great to have won CAMRA’s top bottled beer award, after taking a number of medals in previous competitions over the years.
"The award was given to our 2020 vintage of A over T. We’ve now brewed our 2021 vintage, which is in the brewery shop now."
Kevin Travers, CAMRA’s Champion Beer of Britain competition co-ordinator, said: "We were only able to judge bottled beers rather than the usual cask ale.
"That makes this presentation to Hogs Back for A over T a ’one off’ this year, and all the more enjoyable for that."
