Multi award winning Rudgate Brewery Brewery from the Vale of York struck gold at Britain’s most prestigious beer festival.
Rudgate Brewery, from Tockwith, won the mild category at the Champion Beer of Britain awards at the Great British Beer Festival at Olympia in London yesterday.
It is the latest in a series of awards for the beer, which won silver in the same category last year and gold in the overall champion award in 2009.
Rudgate managing director Craig Lee said: “I was so nervous waiting for the results – it reminded me of been back at school awaiting exam results! They announced the bronze and silver and I turned to my head brewer Jamie and said “It’s all or bust now” – and then we won gold. It was amazing – it’s just brilliant.”If you enjoyed this post, make sure you subscribe to my RSS feed!
