Bitter, Lakeland Gold and Cumbrian Five Hop are CAMRA ‘Beers of the Year’ as listed in the new 2016 Good Beer Guide, just published.
Over the course of the year the beers go through several rounds of judging and were found by CAMRA judges to be consistently outstanding in their categories. All three beers were shortlisted for the Champion Beer of Britain (CBOB) competition held at the Great British Beer Festival (GBBF) in August.
“‘Beers of the Year’ appear in every year’s Good Beer Guide and it’s rare to see a brewery with three beers listed. We’re delighted to have been triple finalists at The Champion Beer of Britain.” commented Sales Manager Anne.
While at GBBF Anne met Michael Hardman, one of the original gang of four lads from Warrington who started CAMRA and said “we both got a bit glassy-eyed to see how far it has come.”
