Bottled Monument Gold Pale Ale From The Chiltern Brewery Wins Diploma Class A1 In BBI Awards
Monument Gold Pale Ale 3.8% vol from The Chiltern Brewery has been awarded a prized British Bottlers’ Institute Diploma Award – Class A1 in the Ales, Lagers & Ciders category (up to 3.9% vol) to continue a “golden summer of awards” for the brewery.
Founded in 1953, the British Bottlers’ Institute has long been a crucial supporter to the bottling and packaging industry and this year’s competition attracted a record number of entrants.
All the products entered were blind tasted and the BBI were delighted to report high standards throughout.
“This bottled beer is a sunshine golden ale based on a limited edition draught produced in our 30th year to help raise funds for the renovation of the nearby Coombe Hill Monument which can be seen from the brewery” says Head Brewer Tom Jenkinson .
Refreshing and soft on the palate and teeming with English summer flavours of honeyed malts and aromatic hops, Monument Gold Pale Ale is a craft ale with a lighter style which is beautifully smooth and pleasurable to drink.
Brother and director George Jenkinson is always pleased to receive an industry award such as this. “To gain recognition from those within the industry is always a special honour” he says.
The Chiltern Brewery has been at the forefront of the revival of classic English ale styles for over 35 years. In recent years this has extended to the creation of new styles, all brewed with the finest English malt and hops, naturally.
The winners will be presented with medals and certificates at the annual BBI dinner being to be held on Thursday 22nd October at the Vintners’ Hall, London.
