We celebrated 10 years of brewing success at our annual Beer Festival on 9-10 September by raising a record amount of £1,295.16 for Anthony Nolan. The charity helps to save the lives of people with blood cancer by matching bone marrow donors to recipients. One recipient was David Coatesworth, husband of Angela Coatesworth, our accounts administrator.   “Sadly David died of a rare form of Leukaemia in March, despite a bone marrow transplant that the Anthony Nolan Trust helped to find for him.” said Angela. “So when the Brewery asked staff to nominate a charity to receive this year’s festival donations, I didn’t hesitate to suggest Anthony Nolan. I was so pleased when the rest of our team agreed that it’s an excellent cause, and a way to remember David, who loved the Brewery.”   The money was raised through people donating the unused part of their beer vouchers, a raffle with prizes that included a brew day with the team and a gallon of beer, as well as cash donations on the day. The Brewery also pledged to give 25p for each pint of its specially brewed 10th anniversary beer sb_decennium_clip_rgb sold at the...

We are celebrating again this week after winning more international brewing recognition in the International Beer Challenge (IBC) Awards 2016. We are particularly pleased to win our first ever award for design and packaging with SaltaireXS Imperial IPA (9.5% ABV) receiving a Silver award.   Managing Director Ewen said, “We are delighted to have received bronze awards for SaltaireXS Imperial IPA and our famous Triple Chocoholic stout in the tasting category of the IBC awards - particularly when we were up against such strong competition from across the UK and internationally.”   “Our SaltaireXS brand of beers, first brewed in 2014, is aimed at those discerning and inquisitive beer drinkers who are on the lookout for new flavour experiences. This is a third international beer award for SaltaireXS Imperial IPA, and is another fantastic endorsement from the industry, customers and our peers.”   SaltaireXS Imperial IPA’s two new awards join its 2015 World Beer awards when it was voted Europe’s, and the UK’s Best Imperial IPA. Triple Chocoholic (4.8% ABV) has won numerous industry and trade awards, including an International Brewing Awards Gold medal in 2015. IBC DAP logo MEDALS_2016_SilverIBC tasting MEDALS 2016_Bronze
