A BAKEWELL based brewery has been recognised as one of the best in the country after winning an award in the National Beer Competition.
Thornbridge won a silver award in the contest held by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA).
Pale ale, Kipling, won the award in the Strong Bitters Category after progressing through a series of regional and national judging sessions. It was one of only 52 beers out of 1,400 to take away a medal.
Thornbridge also took Bronze with their Jaipur IPA in SIBA’s inaugural keg beer competition.
Thornbridge’s director Simon Webster said: “We work hard to make our beers the best they can be and it’s fantastic to receive this public recognition. I’m grateful to everyone at the brewery, to the pubs who sell our beers and to our many loyal drinkers locally, for helping us to win these awards.”
Julian Grocock, chief executive of SIBA, said “Thornbridge’s skill, passion and dedication to creating great craft beer, make it a deserving winner.”
