Greene King is to roll out a beer flavoured with rhubarb when an exclusive listing with Tesco runs out.

Ruddles Rhubarb saw off competition from 63 other brews at the recent Tesco Beer Challenge to win an exclusive summer listing with the multiple. The beer has an abv of 4.7% and is packaged in 50cl bottles, which Tesco is selling for £1.69 each.

It is brewed using the Brambling Cross hop and is flavoured with rhubarb.

"Ruddles Rhubarb is unlike anything else you will find in the supermarket and Tesco's seal of approval will assure people they are getting a great-tasting beer," said take-home director Neil Jardine.
