Local breweries winning awards

I always like seeing our local breweries win awards, so I'm particularly pleased that three local breweries have won awards at SIBA’s North West Independent Beer Awards 2016 held in Bolton this month.

Southport Brewery won:
  • Gold for bottled Dark Night, a mild.
  • Silver for bottled Golden Sands, a golden ale.
  • Bronze for cask Golden Sands.
Liverpool Organic Brewery won:
  • Silver in the bottled premium strong beers category for Imperial Russian Stout.
  • Bronze in the pale ale category for Cascade.
Formby's Red Star Brewery won: 
  • Gold in the bottled porter category for Partisan.
The full results are here. Well done to all concerned. The only one I haven't had here is the Imperial Russian Stout: I must keep an eye out for it.

Historical fact: Southport Brewery's Dark Night was named after the tragic Mexico lifeboat disaster of 1886 which happened locally.

SIBA is the Society of Independent Brewers.
