6X by Wadworth Brewery
Today’s judge is Cask Marque’s newest team member, Mark Tinsley.
Mark has chosen 6X, which is Wadworth Brewery’s iconic ale. First brewed on 5th December 1923. Wadworth are celebrating 6X’s centenary all year with events activities and prizes.
There’s a fun fact about how it got it’s name too…
Originally 6%, Coopers would mark XXXXXX on the wooden casks to indicate the beer’s strength. One day a ‘lazy’ Cooper simply wrote ‘6’ followed by a single ‘X’ on the cask and that’s how it got its name!
