Three of our beers have been crowned Champion Beers of Cumbria 2011 by CAMRA (The Campaign for Real Ale).
Hawkshead’s Lakeland Gold won the Best Bitter category for the third year running, Brodie’s Prime the best Porter for the second year and Bitter won the Bitter category, in the annual awards for Cumbrian beers, announced at the Beer Lovers Dinner at the Castle Green Hotel, Kendal on Friday 11th November.
We won the top prize in 3 out of the 10 cask beer categories, voted on by CAMRA branches in the North West region. Windermere Pale was also shortlisted in the Bitter category but was beaten to the gold medal by Hawkshead Bitter.
These awards follow our recent success two weeks ago in Manchester where Windermere Pale was awarded Overall Champion at the SIBA North Beer Competition.
Our Sales Manager, Anne Jones said “Hawkshead Bitter is at the centre of everything we do so it’s always good to have our hard work recognised by CAMRA members”.
