Blog: Olly WehringAnd the best beer in the UK is...

Olly Wehring | 5 August 2009

Judges at this year's Great British Beer Festival have crowned Yorkshire brew Rudgate Ruby Mild as the best beer in the UK.

Ruby Mild, which is brewed near to York in northern England and has an abv of 4.4%, was crowned champion at this week's Great British Beer Festival in London, organised by the Campaign For Real Ale (CAMRA).

Perhaps more importantly for the beer sector as a whole, CAMRA says that there are more brewers in the country - more than 670 - than at any time since the end of the Second World War in 1945.

Beer sales may have continued to slip by volume in the UK this year, but there is clearly life in the market.
