Great British Pub Awards

Having won the regional heat of the Great British Pub Awards our pub the Rat & Ratchet went through to the National Final in the Best Cask Beer Pub category. Rat & Ratchet Manager Richard Prest had entered the pub into the competition and went to London to attend the finals at The Park Lane Hilton. Richard and partner Lisa Dunbar were ecstatic to collect the overall award for Best Cask Beer Pub in the UK. A well deserved award for the Rat, for Richard and his team and also for Huddersfield - a contender for best cask beer town in Britain?

SIBA Success

The annual Society of Independent Brewers awards for the North East region were held at the York Beer Festival in September. Over 300 beers were judged by 70+ judges in a number of categories. We were chuffed to walk away with 3 awards from the 5 beers we entered: Silver King won Bronze in the Best Bitter category. King Rat won Bronze in the Strong Bitter category. Yorkshire Blonde Premium won Silver in the Golden Bottled Beer category. ​

Rat in a Bottle

We have bowed to customer demand and bottled a small batch of our flagship IPA in 330ml bottles. Rat Against The Machine is an intensely hopped American style IPA that is bottled conditioned. A powerful 7% pale and bitter beer with massive citrus hop aroma derived from US Chinook & Citra hops. We’re really happy with the powerful and complex taste and we’d love to know what you think. The bottles are available from the Brewery Shop, the Rat & Ratchet pub in Huddersfield and many specialist beer retailers.
