Desperately trying to over-haul the “real ale” image of real ale, brothers Nick, Charlie and Matthew launched the eponymous Otley Brewery back in 2005. And the sleekly packaged fruits of their labour have just won recognition in the True Taste Awards.
The range consists of O1, O2, OBB, OG, O8 and Dark O (taking in everything from a 4 per cent pale ale to a stout). We have been supping the O1, a bottle-conditioned beer that’s light and hoppy and ideal for the recent return of summer. This stuff tastes even better than it looks. www.otleybrewing.co.uk
