Check out our success in the World Beer and the Great Taste Awards
2nd October 2020
Here at the brewery we're celebrating winning three awards at the World Beer Awards and two gold stars at the Guild of Fine Food's Great Taste Awards.
Our first lager, Landmark Lager and gluten free favourite, Scarborough Fair IPA both won bronze awards at the annual worldwide beer competition, as did Swell, the barrel aged beer that we produced in conjunction with sister company, Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery.
Landmark Lager won its award in the Session Lager category (UK), Scarborough Fair in the English Style IPA category (UK) and Swell in the Barrel Aged category (UK).
Our Brewery Manager, Alex said: “It’s always a great achievement to win awards in brewing competitions that are judged by our industry peers, but even more rewarding to see new beers Landmark Lager and Swell achieving success on a worldwide platform in their first industry wide competition.”
The World Beer Awards are held annually to celebrate the ‘World's Best Beers’ in both taste and design.
Our first barrel-aged beer, Swell was also awarded a gold star at the Great Taste Awards that are dubbed the Oscars of the food and drink world. Our multi award-winning Blonde Beer, Wold Gold, was also awarded a prestigious star.
The Great Taste Awards judging panel concluded that Swell was ‘a beautiful blend of the casks, which is a skill in and of itself and it is a very nice drink’ and ‘well textured and complex, plenty of weight and power’ whilst Wold Gold had a ‘gently honeyed, beguiling nose.’
In the Great Taste Awards 2020, 12,777 products were judged by 144 of the most discerning palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs, buyers, retailers and producers, as well as food writers and journalists.
