Ours is Europe’s Best Imperial IPA!
Monday, October 5th, 2015
We're delighted that the World Beer Awards has added another top award to our international trophy haul with SaltaireXS Imperial IPA (9.5% ABV) voted Europe’s Best Imperial IPA after coming top in the UK heats in August. Managing Director, Ewen said, “We challenged our brewers to concentrate the flavours, experiment with new techniques and produce beers at the leading edge of world beers - and the Saltaire XS range was born! So far we’ve produced the Imperial IPA and Imperial Stout (8.9% ABV) but we have ideas for more classic beers. The recognition by the World Beer Awards is a fantastic endorsement of our brewing team and their creativity - especially when you see the quality of the other entries - but we won’t let it go to our heads! Our focus remains on quality, consistency and innovation to satisfy increasingly discerning drinkers in this highly competitive industry.” SaltaireXS Imperial IPA (9.5% ABV) is a classic new world IPA.

Beer Festival raises funds for Epilepsy Research UK
Friday, September 18th, 2015
On 11-12 September, Saltaire Brewery’s Beer Festival kick started this year’s Saltaire Festival 11-19 September by attracting more than 1800 real ale fans to Saltaire and Shipley, and raised £400 for Epilepsy Research UK. Festival goers donated unused beer tokens to charity, and with match funding from the Brewery, the total raised is £400. Epilepsy Research UK was chosen as this year’s recipient in memory of a close friend of the Brewery, William Kay who died in 2011, aged 21, as a result of SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy). Ewen Gordon, managing director said, “Epilepsy is such a common condition, affecting mainly children and people over 65 but it can affect anyone at any age. It was devastating to Will’s family and friends to lose him suddenly and at such a young age. We’re delighted that our Beer Festival goers generously contributed towards important research into this condition.” Epilepsy Research UK supports and promotes basic and clinical scientific research into the causes, treatments and prevention of epilepsy; and is the only national charity in the UK that funds independent research exclusively into this condition. ...Read more
