Triple XB – A good honest ale
Beer with real flavour and character
Our celebrated Triple XB (XXXB) – a smooth yet distinctively flavoured English tawny beer – was first unveiled in 1978 by Batemans then head brewer, Ken Dixon. It fast became a best-seller and big favourite amongst our drinkers. In 1986, it was voted CAMRA’s Beer of the Year at the Great British Beer Festival; and has been named CAMRA Premium Beer of the Year four times since.
Hailed for its unique flavour, this award-winning brew was re-launched in 2018 under the expert eye of brewery manager, Scott Lawrence, as a slightly stronger 4.8 ABV. And because it’s brewed with four malts and three varieties of hops, XXXB has a deliciously spicy, fruity and biscuity flavour popular with many real-ale lovers.
