1998 Silver Award, Champion Bottled Beer of the Year

1997 Guardian Newspaper Bottle Conditioned Beer of the Year

In the 18th and 19th century Britain being one of the great naval forces of all time faced the problem of supplying its serving men in it's World Empire with beer. In particular voyages to the continent of India with its tropic climate lasted for months and the dark, fruity ales of Britain turned sour and flat. In 1790 George Hodgson, brewer at the Bow Brewery in East London met the breweries' challenge by simply adding considerably more hops, more brewers' sugar and more grain to obtain a pale, highly attenuated, strong and very heavily hopped beer. The classic style India Pale Ale was born.

Burton Bride Brewery located in the famous beer town of Burton-on-Trent has now re-created this famous style. Thanks to the sulfur rich waters of the river Trent that enhances the clarity and the bitterness of the beer Burton Bridge's Empire India Pale Ale with its alc./vol. of 7.5% is now considered the "benchmark" of this classic style. Its complex combination of dryness hoppyness and fruityness has won numerous accolades throughout the world of beer.
