Bronze, Silver and Gold for Bowland Brewery
Bowland Brewery is celebrating after winning bronze, silver and gold accolades in some of the industry’s most prestigious awards during the last two weeks.
The brewery, based in Holmes Mill, Clitheroe, and owned by James’ Places, scooped a Bronze for its Buster IPA in the Ales category in the International Beer Challenge – a premier award which attracts entries from more than 30 countries and recognises the skill of the brewer.
Buster IPA is a 4.5 per cent well balanced IPA ale with tropical undertones, developed by Bowland’s craft brewers over the last two years.
Bowland Gold, another artisan ale from the brewery, won a Silver for Standard Bitters and Pale Ales at the North West SIBA (Society of Independent Brewers) North West SIBA Awards.
A hoppy golden bitter filled with grapefruit flavours and aromas, Bowland Gold found favour with the 100 independent craft brewers, beer industry representatives and experienced beer drinkers who judged the event held at the Macron Stadium, Bolton. No less than 260 beers from 50 breweries entered the awards.
To top it all off Bowland Brewery became the first ever winner of the Drink Producer of the Year Award at the Lake District and Lancashire Life Food and Drink Awards 2016.
