Triple Chocoholic Stout wins again for Saltaire
Saltaire Brewery’s Triple Chocoholic Stout 4.8% ABV has won Gold in the Speciality Beer category at this year’s Great British Beer Festival (GBBF), taking place in Olympia, London from 12 to 16 August. The bottled version has also received an outstanding 2 stars in 2014’s Great Taste Awards by the Guild of Fine Foods this week.
These are the latest awards for this internationally award-winning stout, which has received recognition every year since it was first brewed in 2009. In the UK, it’s long been a favourite at CAMRA beer festivals and was the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) Supreme Champion in 2010. It’s also received international recognition in its bottled format. In 2011, it won a Gold Medal at the 2011 International Brewing Awards and was voted Europe’s Best Stout at the World Beer Awards. In 2012, it was Best Stout at the Hong Kong International Beer Awards.
Tony Gartland, Managing Director said: “The GBBF is one of the biggest beer competitions in the world and I’m delighted that Triple Chocoholic won Gold in its category this year – last year we received Silver in the same category so it’s heartening to know that CAMRA continue to rate it highly. Alongside its Great Taste award for the bottled version, this has been a special week for a very special beer. ”
Triple Chocoholic Stout is available in cask and bottles. The bottles are stocked in Booths and selected Waitrose and Asda stores in Yorkshire, as well as independent off licences.
