We're very pleased to announce that Marmalade Porter was awarded the United Kingdom’s best Porter as the World Beer Awards announced country winners following a day of judging in London recently.
A panel of renowned international judges decided the best beers in each of the 72 styles of the beer awards which saw over 1,900 beers entered from 36 countries worldwide. All of the entries were blind tasted and scored over two rounds.
Our brewery manager Alex Balchin said: “It’s wonderful to see our Yorkshire beer achieving success on such a large international platform. Being named the UK’s best porter in the World Beer Awards is really special.”
The final round of judging will determine the World’s Best Beers and will be held in London on 21 September, when 100 international brewers, industry experts and journalists will taste and vote on the World’s Best Beers 2017 across eight categories.
Within a week of the World Beer Awards, the brewery’s blonde beer, Wold Gold also won a gold award in the cask premium bitters and pale ales category of the SIBA (Society of Independent Brewers) North East Independent Beer Awards 2017 that were held in York last week.
“These latest accolades help to project our brewing expertise nationwide and is a real credit to our hard working and committed team. To win two such prestigious awards in such close succession is just amazing!” concluded Alex.
Earlier this year, Marmalade Porter won the gold medal in the Porters, Stouts, Old Ales, Strong Milds and Strong Brown Ales 4.5% to 6.4% category at the North East Regional Keg Heats of the SIBA Independent Keg Beer Awards 2017.
