Maris Otter Wins Again!

Britain’s premier beer event, the Great British Beer Festival held at Olympia, has produced yet another Maris Otter champion beer, with Bingham’s Brewery, from near Twyford, Berkshire, scooping the supreme championship with it’s… Vanilla Stout.

This 5.0% ABV beer is described as a “dark stout infused with vanilla and dark malts” but mainly it’s  base malt of Maris Otter.

This is Maris Otter’s 11th Supreme Championship in 17 years, a record that no other barley variety is ever likely to come close to, let alone challenge. So our venerable barley variety marches on, into its 52nd year, unchallenged!
