Some facts about Landlord:
• It has won both CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain and the Brewing Industry Awards Gold Medal a record four times.
• Holds the unique distinction of being the first beer in Britain ever to hold the CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain and the Brewing Industry International Awards Supreme Champion simultaneously (1999-2000).
• The ale was based on Taylor’s BB – a beer occasionally brewed in the 1930s to a Superior Bitter recipe and launched onto the market in 1953 as Competition Ale. The competition was for local drinkers to come up with a suitable name for the new beer. It was eventually won by a local steward from the Keighley Drill Hall Club who won a £500 prize for naming it Landlord.
