International Brewing Awards Hat Trick for Saltaire
Yorkshire based Saltaire Brewery has just won its third consecutive Gold Medal at the biennial International Brewing Awards, the industry’s most prestigious competition, for its multi-award winning speciality stout, Triple Chocoholic (4.8% abc).
This is the second time that Triple Chocoholic has been awarded Gold in the Speciality, Special Feature Beer category; its first award in this competition was in 2011. In 2013, Saltaire’s first kegged beer Saltaire Gold (4.0%) won Gold as Best Kegged Beer under 4.4%.
Managing Director, Ewen Gordon said, “The International Brewing Awards attracts more than 1000 entries from 50 countries. For our beers to be judged amongst the best in the world by fellow brewers is a fantastic endorsement of our brewing team – especially as this is our third Gold Medal in the competition in a row.”
He added, “We’re a small Yorkshire brewery that prides itself on producing consistently high quality beers in cask, keg and bottle. We are absolutely delighted that our beers hold their own with some of the world’s best beers, produced by much larger, more famous breweries.”
Triple Chocoholic Stout is a 4.8% abv speciality stout. Chocolate malts and chocolate essence combine to provide a strong chocolate bouquet and a rich chocolate flavour. Good hopping provides a balancing bitterness.
It is available in bottles from selected Booths, Waitrose and Co-operative Food stores regionally as well as independent and online beer shops.
