Tony launching Saltaire Gold
We’re over the moon to have won our second Gold Award at the International Brewing Awards! Our first kegged ale, Saltaire Gold 4.0% was judged to be the world’s best keg ale under 4.4% ABV at the competition held on 15 February.
We only launched Saltaire Gold last November, and it’s our first keg product. While the quality of our cask ales is well recognised – we already have more than 50 national and international awards - to receive this top international award for our first kegged beer is a delightful surprise.
Head Brewer Tony explains: “We designed Saltaire Gold for pubs, restaurants and bars that can’t offer the traditional cask ales that we’re best known for. While we’re very pleased with its flavour, which has also proved popular with customers, I really didn’t expect us to win a top international award. It’s testament to our commitment to brew top quality, tasty, award-winning beer in cask, keg and bottle.”
But for anyone wanting to offer Saltaire Gold to their customers, the beer has limited availability. Sales Director, Ewen advises, “Despite the excitement this award is bound to create, it will be a little time before we’re able to distribute outside of our Yorkshire heartland, but we’d welcome any enquiries – just get in touch with us.”
