Top British beers

Ahead of the first ever Beer Day Britain, the “There’s a beer for that” campaign cherry-picks eight of Britain’s “greatest beers”.

slider-01Founded by beer sommelier Jane Peyton the first Beer Day Britain – a national day to celebrate the best of beer in Britain – will take place on 15 June.

Britain’s 2014 Beer Sommelier of the Year, Jane Peyton is also an author, public speaker and events producer, as well as Beer Day Britain’s project manager.

Its launch will coincide with the 800th anniversary of the sealing of the Magna Carta, in which ale is given a prominent mention.

“Let there be throughout our kingdom a single measure for wine and a single measure for ale and a single measure for corn, namely the London quarter”, reads Clause 35 of the document.

“Beer Day Britain gives the nation a real opportunity to celebrate the incredible beer available in Britain from home and abroad, and to feel proud of our national drink”, said Peyton.

“We are encouraging the nation to join us in a national cheers to beer on June 15th at 12.15pm – in reflection of the year the Magna Carta was sealed – and rejoice in the country’s love of beer.”

There’s A Beer For Thatan beer industry campaign backed by Britain’s Beer Alliance which aims to educate and excite the public on the quality, diversity and versatility of beer, is backing Beer Day Britain.

David Cunningham, programme director for There’s a Beer for That said: “Our ambition is to drive a renaissance for Britain’s love of beer and we are really excited to work with ‘Britain’s Sommelier of The Year 2014’ Jane Peyton, to get behind Beer Day Britain and invest our support in a campaign that is so closely aligned with our objectives.”

    It’s obvious that Lauren really loves beer. She must have had so much to drink that she forgot how to count to ten, and got her “terrible beers” list muddled up with her “top 10 beers”.

  4. Ian Prise says:

    What worries me is that 2 of these top 8/10 (where are the other 2) beers are in clear glass bottles and could be at risk of getting skunked?

  5. Dr Vodka says:

    What nonsense. Should be called – First ten beers that I could think of in 60 seconds.

  6. Sam Garcia says:

    This is un-beer-lievably bad! I think this writer should hops, skip and jump into any northern pub and sample some truly gritty ales. I’ve heard Kelham Island is nice at this time of year.
