Ginger Tosser is Cornish champion

1906

For the third year running, Truro-based Skinners Brewery won the Cornish champion beer title at the CAMRA Falmouth Beer Festival to qualify once again for next year’s Champion Beer of Great Britain competition.

This time it was the turn of Ginger Tosser – originally created for Pancake Day but now a permanent fixture in the Skinners stable – to take the honours at Falmouth.

Ginger Tosser won the speciality beer class and Skinners was also in the limelight elsewhere at the festival. Its newly-launched Betty’s Big Sister, now the second strongest in the Cornish brewery’s range, was the first barrel to be emptied at the trade night.

Ginger Tosser was second overall in the entire festival, while Pennycomequick took silver in the stout class. Pennycomequick is the stout specially brewed to launch the Falmouth Oyster Festival, which ran earlier in October, and it is now available across the county.
