We're delighted to report that Alex and Kate Balchin returned from a successful trade show in Italy with yet another accolade for Marmalade Porter.
The winning beer, a complex and rich dark brew with a sweet, malty base and an ABV of 5%, was awarded third prize in the low and high fermentation – low alcohol content (<5.5%) category at the fifth World Gluten Free Beer Awards at the Beer Attraction event in Rimini.
Brewery Manager, Alex said: “It’s great to see our Yorkshire beer achieving success on a worldwide gluten free platform.
“The competition judged 46 beers from eight countries, so we were delighted that Marmalade Porter not only won a prize, but was one of only two UK beers to be awarded prizes across the three categories.”
In 2017, Marmalade Porter, with its overtones of bitter orange and hints of coffee and chocolate, also won United Kingdom’s best Porter at the World Beer Awards and 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.
