The captivating amber gold colour makes this Yorkshire bitter a sight to behold. Brewed with whole-flower English hops, Best Bitter Beer packs a genuine spiky bitterness with big character.
Challenger, Goldings and Fuggle hops blend to create a beautiful aroma and flavour with kicks of grassy freshness and a big peppery punch. The Maris Otter malt provides a light sweetness, balancing Best Bitter’s big flavours to create one of the North’s finest session beers.
Wensleydale Brewery was established in 2003 at the Foresters Arms in Carlton. A small one-barrel plant was soon overwhelmed by its growing reputation and the brewery was moved to a Manor Farm Barn in Bellerby with a larger 5 barrel set up. At this time enthusiastic dales youngsters Geoff and Carl began working for the brewery straight from school and after several years bought the brewery outright.
As the Wensleydale Brewery continued to expand, they moved to their current premises in Leyburn in 2018.
The Charles Bathurst Inn stocks Game Keeper Best Bitter, which has all the traditional traits of a Yorkshire Best Bitter with a modern edge. Rich copper in colour with malty and slightly biscuity flavours; Magnum hops give a subtle hoppy finish.
