Hawkshead Brewery take home double Gold at SIBA North West Independent Beer Awards

 

Hawkshead Brewery in Cumbria have taken home the two top spots at the SIBA North West Independent Beer Awards, winning overall Gold in both the cask and small pack (bottle and can) competitions.

The prestigious awards, run by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) and held at the Macron stadium in Bolton, are judged by brewers and beer experts and seen very much as the brewers’ choice awards in the industry.

Hawkshead’s “Windermere Pale” took home the overall Gold in the cask competition and is described as being a “highly refreshing, very pale ale, bursting with hop character and a fine fruity aroma”. Hawkhead’s “Brodie’s Prime Export”, a stronger version of their popular Brodie’s Prime bitter, was named overall small pack winner and is described as a “Rich, complex, strong dark ale, with aromas of dark chocolate, treacle sweet flavours, roasted bitterness, a surprising fruitiness and a long dry finish.”

Commenting on the win was SIBA Competitions Committee Chair Guy Sheppard, who presented the awards,

“These awards are judged in blind-tasting by brewers and industry experts, so to take home overall Gold across two categories is a first in England and something Hawkshead should be extremely proud of – I’d like to congratulate them and all of the other brewers who won awards as the quality of entries was high across the board.” 

Alex Brodie from Hawkshead collected their award and had this to say on their win, “We’re staggered, we’ve been coming to these awards for a very long time and you leave elated if you win one or two, so to win overall in two is just amazing. Our head brewer Matt is the genius behind all of this and the one who gives us amazing consistency, huge innovation, and style in our beers and these awards are down to him and the whole team at Hawkshead brewery. We’ll be cracking open the odd bottle to celebrate with the entire brewing team and bar staff!”

The competition took place prior to the opening of the Bolton Beer Festival 2017, at the Macron Stadium in Bolton, which continues through until saturday 7th October. Former details visit http://www.beer-festival.co.uk

Drinking real ale is good for the economy: its official.

Trips to coffee shop or restaurant chains are one thing. But visits to the pub for a glass of real ale with its British ingredients are quite another in terms of helping boost the local and national economy.

Every pint ordered gives a lift to the nations booming brewing industry, and helps to create jobs and keep local pubs open. So says the newly published Cask Report. It shows that each job in brewing generates 18 jobs in pubs, one in agriculture, one in the supply chain and one in shops.

At least three new breweries are opening every week, taking the number to more than 1,700. Between them, they are producing over 10,000 different cask ales a year. With the increasing adventurousness of brewers, and growing experimentation with beer styles, choice has never been better. 

Almost half of Britons and 70% of real ale drinkers recognise the vital role cask ale plays in supporting the economy. Awareness of its artisan production using British ingredients is growing.
Virtually all cask ale brewers use barley grown and malted in Britain, says Paul Nunny, responsible for creating the report. They create a fresh product with live yeast, no added gas and limited shelf life. A second fermentation in the pub cellar is needed to complete the brewing process. Thats why cask (real) ale is unique to the pub and cant be bought at the supermarket.

The research shows that real ale drinkers are the most frequent users of pubs and spend more there than anyone else. Their £1,030 a year on food and drink is 30% more than the average adult spend in pubs (£770 a year) and is 6.5% up on two years ago. Two in five real ale drinkers visit the pub once a week or more.

The top reason given by ale drinkers for visiting the pub is to go for a drink or meal with family or friends (79%). Others include work social event (38%), dinner deals (30%), pub quizzes (30%), live music (28%), TV big games (23%), dates (20%) and work meetings (13%).

The message the Cask Report sends to licensees is to make sure they do a great job for customers, for whatever kind of occasion they are visiting the pub. This includes getting the quality of their beer right, Says Nunny. Pubs are still closing at the rate of around 21 a week, many simply because the offer or the quality is not good enough. The Report shows that pubs with a focus on quality beer are performing well. Most are increasing sales of real ale – and sales of other food and drink on the back of that.

He urges pubs to pay heed to the opportunities associated with a great cask ale offer. It is real, natural, flavoursome beer served from a hand pump that differentiates pubs from all the other food and drink venues springing up on high streets up and down the country. If they can get their beer right and train their staff properly (including getting them to taste and describe the ales they have on offer), they stand a good chance of bringing in the very people who will make the pub viable.

To underline the contribution brewing makes to the British economy, the Cask Report points to capital investment being made to expand beer production, modernise equipment and enlarge premises. SIBA, the organisation representing independent breweries, says that 12% of its 840 members are investing over £50,000 and a further 10% over £100,000 this year. This represents a minimum of £13 million on capital projects alone.

The Report shows that this entrepreneurial sector of the British economy is creating value across the supply chain, including manufacturing and engineering, creating jobs and supporting crucial social networks and local pubs.

Turpin Brewery & Tring Brewery named top Independent Brewers in East of England

 

The prestigious awards, run by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), held at Elgood’s Brewery in Wisbech prior to their beer festival opening last night, are judged by brewers and beer experts and seen very much as the brewers’ choice awards in the industry.

Turpin Brewery’s beer “Cambridge Black” took home the overall Gold in the cask competition and is described as having ‘balanced flavours of coffee, cocoa and dark chocolate’ whereas Tring brewery’s “Pale Four” was named overall small pack (bottle and can) winner and could not be more different, described as being ‘Hops, hops and more hops’ with ‘three different types of specialty malts providing a robust base of malt flavour for this punchy American West Coast IPA style beer’.

 

Collecting the award for Turpin brewery was owner and brewer Marcus Turpin, who had this to say on their win, “This is a huge surprise. The beer has been tweaked over last two years, we think the recipe is great and we’re just that glad people agree and are enjoying it as much as we do. It’s also great to see a dark beer winning at this competition and joining us on the dark side!”

Tring Brewery’s Sales Manager Alex Jackson was on hand to collect their award said the beer is already proving very popular with customers, “To win this award with one of our relatively new beers Pale Four is fantastic. It’s our take on a hoppy American IPA, but with British drinkability. It’s a beer that has grown and grown in popularity amongst our customers – which will hopefully continue following these awards! We’re hugely proud to win.”

The competition took place immediately before the opening of the Elgood’s Brewery Beer Festival 2017, taking place at Elgood’s Brewery in Wisbech, which runs Thursday 21st 5-10.30pm, Friday 22nd 5-10.30pm and Saturday 23rd 12 midday until 10.30pm. The festival features over 150 beers from Independent Craft Breweries and will give the chance to be the first to try the regions newly award-winning beers.
