"The winners from the SIBA competition are officially the best independent craft beers in the UK, something brewers should be extremely proud of" Ian Fozard, SIBA Chairman.
The SIBA Midlands Region Beer Awards judged a huge range of beers across a number of styles in separate cask and bottle, and can competitions. As the awards are judged mostly by brewers, industry experts and beer journalists the SIBA Independent Beer Awards are very much seen as the prestigious ‘Brewers’ Choice Awards’ by the industry. In total the Midlands Region supplied 177 different cask ales and 107 beers in bottle or can which were all judged on the day. Brampton Brewery M.D. Chris Radford had this to say on their win.
“It’s another fantastic achievement for us and testament to the dedication and hard work of all the team we have at Brampton Brewery. Winning awards is not necessarily what it’s all about, but it’s always better to be winning them than not. It feels particularly special to win here – your peers, industry experts – there’s no higher compliment. We had a great year last year too, but we’ll do what we do – get our heads down and go again.”
