Timothy Taylors Landlord 500ml
The drinkers’ favourite, a classic pale ale with a complex citrus and hoppy aroma. A recent survey revealed that Landlord has the highest proportion of drinkers who call it their favourite ale. It has won more awards than any other beer, winning both CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain and the Brewing Industry Awards Gold Medal four times.
In 1952 Chairman Philip Taylor and senior brew-house staff endeavoured to create a new premium beer. The strong pale ale which emerged from the drawing board was designed to be a bottled brand to meet a market which was growing in popularity. In those days bottled ale was sold in substantial volumes in pubs and Timothy Taylor’s were no exception. The brewery also enjoyed a flourishing off-sale. There were no supermarkets, canned beer was only beginning to be developed, and so bottles were the only off-sale or take-away commodity of the time.
The ale was based on Taylor’s BB – a beer occasionally brewed in the 1930s to a Superior Bitter recipe and launched onto the market in 1953 as Competition Ale. The competition was for local drinkers to come up with a suitable name for the new beer. It was eventually won by a local steward from the Keighley Drill Hall Club who won a £500 prize for naming it Landlord. Little did anybody realise at the time that Taylor’s had given birth to a beer that was in later years to achieve virtual cult status.
