Cumbrian Five Hop won silver in the Golden Ales category at CBOB - Camra's Champion Beer of Britain competition held during GBBF at Olympia.
So that's another big gong for Five Hop. It was already the reigning Champion Golden Ale of the North West and overall Champion Beer of the NW - that's how it got to the national final.
It's a big flavoured, American style IPA, with 3 English and 2 American hop varieties and we are really pleased that the CAMRA judges appreciated such a thoroughly modern beer, which goes down well in the craft beer market. (It came second behind Oakham's Citra - a worthy winner & another highly hopped beer. )
Also our Hawkshead Bitter was a CAMRA beer of the year, having made it to the final.
We'll be brewing a bit more Cumbrian Five Hop than usual in the next few weeks. In addition the bottled version of Cumbrian Five Hop is currently on offer online and at The Beer Hall.
