Elland first in land

I'm pleased to see that Elland 1872 Porter has been chosen as the CAMRA Champion Winter Beer of Britain at the National Winter Ales Festival which began today in Manchester.

1872 Porter from the Elland Brewery in West Yorkshire is a beer I've drunk many times, both at beer festivals and in pubs. It's got a lovely, liquoricey bitterness to it that really goes with the more roasty flavours you associate with stout. And at 6.5% you certainly know when you've had a few pints of it.
