We started the summer with great expectations and, weather aside, we had a great one! We’re delighted to end this great British Summer with a gold medal for our beer: Great Expectations (see what we did there?).
Great Expectations (details on our beer page) won first place today in the Best Bitter category for the Eastern Region SIBA (the independent brewers association) competition. It’s a 4.2% golden ale. It features the Galaxy hop (using some Cascade for smoothing) and is yummy.
Brewed as a special for the Leicester beer festival this year, we liked it, entered it in the competition and may well brew it more regularly now.
Oh and by the way this is the first of Kathy’s own beer recipes to pick up an award. We are proper happy!
