Hatched in 1993, at a time when most ales on the market were brown, Rooster’s Brewing Co. fast developed a reputation for brewing ground-breaking, hop-forward pale ales that showcase exciting new hops from the USA. Fast forward nearly twenty-five years and they’re still crazy about hops and the flavours they impart on beer – their hop store is crammed full of varieties from all over the world; from Australia and New Zealand to Slovenia and North America. But that’s not to say they don’t enjoy playing around with other flavours and styles of beer along the way. The beers soon started to attract the attention of judges at beer festivals across the UK, racking up countless awards along the way. Over the years the awards have kept coming, but on a slightly larger scale, with YPA picking up back to back gold medals at the prestigious World Beer Cup in recent times, whilst Baby-Faced Assassin won a bronze medal at the 2015 International Beer Awards, as well as a gold and bronze in 2017. Yankee also scooped a silver at the 2017 International Beer Awards.
