Extra Special Bitter was a revolt against the bland ales of war-rationing 1940’s England. It’s a two-finger salute to the creed of “less is more” and follows its own mantra, “more is better”. More malt, more hops, more solidarity for the common man. It’s been the engine oil of miners strikes, Britpop and heated arguments about the Premier League from Hull to the East End ever since. “God save the Queen and give us anuvor pint luv, I’m parched me”.
