Timothy Taylor’s famous award-winning Best Bitter has been renamed Boltmaker. The tipple has been given the rebranding following a competition, which attracted over 450 entries. The winning entry was from Phil Booth, landlord of the Boltmakers Arms in East Parade, Keighley. He has received £1,000 – which he is donating to Manorlands – and 36 gallons of the newly-named beer. “This is just fantastic – when I entered I never expected to win,” said Phil. “What could be better for business than having a beer called Boltmaker on my bar! It will help to spread the name far and wide.” Timothy Taylor sales director Grant Simpson said: “Exactly 60 years ago we ran a similar competition to name a beer – it became Landlord and has grown into an iconic brand.
