The Windsor and Eton brewery have picked up a Gold Award from the Campaign for Real Ale for their Conqueror Ale. The prize was awarded in the category of best strong bitter in the London and South East region of the Champion Beer of Britain competition 2012.
Conqueror is a stunning beer. With a smokey and spicy character this beer is a strong black IPA weighing in at 5.0%.
“Black treacle and espresso notes, combined with the weaponry to provide you with a good swift kick in the chops. Not a beer that sits on the back shelf hiding away, but more a pint that muscles up to the counter and shouts ‘Come and have a go if you think you are hard enough‘. William the Bastard of Normandy would definitely have enjoyed downing a pint of Conqueror after a hard day of abusing Saxons. “
