Wold Newton based Wold Top Brewery gained silver for gluten free beer Wold Top Against the Grain in the bottled speciality beers category and bronze for Shepherd's Watch in the bottled bitter (over 5% ABV) category of the SIBA (Society of Independent Breweries) North Region Beer Competition in Manchester last week.
Wold Top Against the Grain (4.5% ABV) is enjoyed by coeliacs and non coeliacs alike and is a multi award winning full flavoured bitter beer with a creamy head, refreshing bitterness and a citrus hop after taste.
Shepherd's Watch (6% ABV) is one of two winter beers produced by the Yorkshire coast microbrewery and is a rich, dark ale with a spicy and fruity edge that is perfect with Yorkshire Parkin, Mince Pies and Christmas Cake. It is the first award for the beer that was launched in 2010.
Brewery owner Tom Mellor was delighted to win the award and said; "It's a great accolade to have the SIBA seal of approval on these beers."
The competition marked the start of the annual three day festival that is run in association with Greater Manchester CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale).
Both beers are available from farm shops, farmers markets and independent retailers throughout Yorkshire. Shepherd's Watch will also be on promotion in Booths family owned supermarkets during November and December and features in the Brewery's winter gift pack with 5 Wold Rings.
