Barrel-full of accolades for Wirral brewers at North West’s top beer challenge
Peerless Brewing Company scooped five accolades at the SIBA North West Region Beer Competition
Wirral’s Peerless Brewing Company has been hailed a top North West brewer in the region’s toughest beer challenge – giving a major boost to current expansion plans.
At the SIBA (Society if Independent Brewers) North West Region Beer Competition in Bolton the five year old Birkenhead brewery scooped an array of five accolades; two gold, two silver and a bronze. The fiercely fought event judged more than 300 entries from the region’s top breweries.
Peerless claimed gold for both the recently rolled out Knee Buckler IPA in the strong cask- bitters class and for speciality cask ale Jinja Ninja, while silver awards went to new brew RIOT Stout for premium strength cask ales and silver to Jinja Ninja in the speciality bottled category.
RIOT Stout also picked up bronze for bottled porters and stouts. The two gold winners will now be judged at the annual SIBA National Beer Competition held in Sheffield next March.
