A Wold Newton farm diversification business is celebrating after gaining more prestigious national awards for three of its ales.
For the second time, the Guild of Fine Food has deemed three of Wold Top Brewery's real ales worthy of an award, with Wold Top Bitter, Wold Gold and Wold Top Against the Grain gluten free beer all earning gold stars.
Of Wold Top Against the Grain, the brewery's first gluten free beer, the judges said; "Good light flavour. Clean and refreshing. Bright. Some lemon zest. Really a good beer considering it's gluten-free." and commended Wold Gold on its "Good clarity ' citrus on the nose, pleasant easy session beer, nice hop character, well balanced, clean and fresh."
Celebrating its 18th anniversary, The Great Taste Awards are often referred to as the Oscars of the food industry and represent the authoritative, independent standard for Britain's fine food sector.
Gill Mellor from Wold Top Brewery is delighted with the awards; "Given that this is the most important independent nationwide food award scheme and that is renowned for being uncompromisingly rigorous, we are proud to have achieved recognition for the fourth consecutive year and to have put East Yorkshire on the brewing map once more. It's particularly satisfying to achieve our first Great Taste award for Wold Top Against the Grain."
The success comes on the back of the brewery's Golden Summer being the only Northern beer to make the 16 strong shortlist of the Sainsburys Great British Beer Hunt. The beer will be available in Sainsburys stores for 3 weeks during September and could win a permanent listing if it reaches the final 2.
