Product Details - Ridgeway Bitter

See below for information about this product:

Product Type(s): Alcoholic Drinks / British Corner /

ABV 4%

Ridgeway Bitter was voted "BEST BITTER IN THE WORLD" in New York in 2005 and one of the "TOP 50 BEERS IN THE WORLD" in London the following year. A humble bitter isn't trendy enough to win such an accolade these days but it's no less good! Ridgeway Bitter is our old fashioned traditional English session drinking bitter, designed for a thirsty man to knock back in quantity....or at least it would be if that wasn't a frowned upon activity these days. At 4.0% abv it's very slightly on the strong side for a cask bitter and might more correctly be labelled a "best bitter" but that's splitting hairs. This style of beer is slightly malty sweet to provide a full bodied drink at modest alcohol content. To balance that sweetness and make it drinkable it is also considerably bitter. Ridgeway bitter is brewed with pale ale malt, crystal malt and two varieties of English grown hop. One is the "old" traditional variety Challenger which is grown on tall wirework and the other is the newer variety Boadicea. Boadicea is interesting because it is naturally resistant to the hop damson aphid and requires less pesticide treatment than other hops. It also grown on low trellis hedges rather than the traditional tall wirework. Both varieties have a slightly spicy and herbal aroma that was typical of English bitters in the past but not so frequently found these days.
