This drink, which we define as a 'Best Bitter' (a Bitter), has a strength of 3.8% ABV.
Theakston Best Bitter is the leading session ale within the Theakston portfolio and has been for time immemorial!
They say that it is quite possible that when Robert Theakston founded the brewery in 1827, the range of ales would have been limited to just two or three and one of which almost certainly have been a bitter beer. Consequently it would be reasonable to argue that Theakston Best Bitter is one of the longest established session ales from Yorkshire.
When we refer to a ‘bitter’ beer, the term does not mean sour as in lemons, but dry as in ‘dry white wine’. So Best Bitter is a full bodied, dry beer.
