Fyne Ales Jarl wins Champion Beer of Scotland 
For the first time Fyne Ales have won The Campaign for Real Ale’s (CAMRA) Champion Beer of Scotland Competition with their beer Jarl. The coveted prize was announced at the Scottish Real Ale Festival in Edinburgh’s Corn Exchange over the weekend.
Commenting on winning the prize Managing Director of Fyne Ales, Jamie Delap said,
This is a great achievement for the brewery and one which we are very proud of. Our brewing team work very hard to ensure that our beers are amongst the very best in the country and this award is testament to their hard work and dedication.”
Each year The Scottish Real Ale Festival brings together 150 of the best real ales in Scotland.  A panel of expert judges sit each year to deliberate as to which beer is this year’s champion and announce the victor at the trade show. Fyne Ales co-founder Tuggy Delap was present to accept the award and said,
 “We are very proud of a great team who have put in a fabulous effort”
Fyne Ales Jarl is a 3.8% hoppy blonde session ale which is packed full of the hop Citra which gives the beer a fruity aroma and a strong citrus flavour. The brewery first brewed the beer as a special for their annual festival, Fyne Fest which is held at the brewery each year. The beer was so popular that it was quickly taken on as a permanent beer and has become the top selling beer in the Fyne Ales range.

Located on a working farm at the head of loch Fyne, the brewery has been in operation since 2001. Combining only the best malted barley and hops from around the world with the soft highland water from the hills around the brewery, Fyne Ales make beers that are distinctive and full of flavour.
