Great Expectations by name and great expectations by nature.
Last week saw this lovely bitter come second out of all the regional winners in the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) national competition. Great Expectations was first brewed as a special for the Leicester beer festival last year, we liked it, entered it in the regional SIBA competition where it came first and last week won the silver medal in the nationals.
It’s a 4.2% golden ale, featuring the Galaxy hop (using some Cascade for smoothing) and is yummy (you can find more details on our beer pages).
Oh and by the way this is the first of Kathy’s own beer recipes to pick up an award. As you can imagine we are proper happy to have got such great recognition from our fellow brewers.
