Our Awards

From 'UK Brewer of the Year' 2018 to numerous World Beer accolades, our team have been producing award-winning beers as far back as 1952.

Being awarded locally, nationally and internationally means a great deal to us. We hope the dedication of our team, and consistency of quality continues to be recognised for years to come. 

We are, after all, only as good as our last pint.
