Brewery wins silver awards
7:30am Tuesday 8th October 2013 in Local news
BREWERS based in Pilgrims Hatch have picked up two regional gongs for the beer they make.
The Brentwood Brewing Company bagged silver prizes at the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) awards after judges were impressed by their Lumberjack and Brentwood Gold drinks.
Both beers beat off several rivals in their categories following a blind tasting was held to consider the products’ flavour, aroma, condition and drinkability.
Brentwood Gold won silver in the East of England bottled bitters under five per cent category, while Lumberjack got the prize in the bottled bitters over five per cent section.
Picking up the awards for the company was head brewer Sophie de Ronde who said it was “fantastic” to be recognised by such a prestigious body.
Ms de Ronde said: “Results like these build on the brewery's growing reputation for making good quality, craft beers and confirms our position within the industry.
“We're up there with the best of the region's brewers.”
Other beers from Brentwood have won SIBA awards in the past.
The team of brewers who recently moved from South Weald to Pilgrims Hatch hope their history of winning prizes and producing top quality pints will continue in years to come.
Roland Kannor, managing director of the firm, said: “We strive to maintain our high standards and will keep innovating and brewing award winning beer in the hope that one day we'll become overall regional winners.
"We'd love to see a champion beer with our name on it that goes on to represent the region in SIBA's national competition.”
