SIBA 2019 Midlands Winners...
Notts was well-represented at the SIBA Midlands awards this year with 10 breweries from the city and county picking up 20 awards between them.
The SIBA Midlands 2019 Awards took place on Tuesday 20 August before the opening of Peterborough Beer Festival, which continues this weekend.
Milestone Brewery, based in Newark, were our biggest winners with 4 awards in total. Their 5.6% Raspberry Wheat Beer was the big winner on the night, bagging two Golds in the ‘Overall Champion of the Cask’ and ‘Speciality Light Beers’ categories.
Their brewer Gary Gooch said: “We think it’s a great beer and hugely seasonal as we use real fresh British raspberries, which we puree by hand before adding to the beer. They give the finished beer a rose-gold appearance and beautiful flavour and aroma.”
Milestone also picked up a Gold in the ‘Dark Beers Up To 4.4%’ category for Lock Prop & Barrel and Silver in ‘Lager and Pilsners’ for their Helles Lager.
Blue Monkey walked away with 3 awards, two Golds for Marmoset (Session IPA category) and Infinity Plus 1 (IPA), as well as a Bronze for Guerrilla Plum Stout (Speciality Mid to Dark Beers).
