Green Jack brewery’s Ripper has won a prestigious award on the opening day of the Campaign for Real Ale’s Great British Beer Festival Winter.

The barley wine won Champion Winter Beer of Britain for 2018 at the festival in Norwich.

It was described by the judges as a “sweet and warming beer with soft and fruity complex flavours” and “dangerously drinkable.”

The beer has previous success in this area, winning the same award in 2007 and coming second last year.

Tim Dunford from Green Jack brewery said: “It’s absolutely brilliant that we have won this award for the second time, I’m overwhelmed!

“We really love our strong beers and used to travel to Belgium all the time when we first got into the industry - I fell in love with the style and we have gone on from there.”

Green Jack is one of the largest breweries in East Anglia and is the winner of multiple real ale awards.
