We’re massively proud and excited to announce that our beloved flagship beer Moonshine has won the bronze award in the Golden Ales category of this year’s Champion Beer of Britain competition!
Although Moonshine has won many awards over the 22 years of our history, including Champion Beer of Yorkshire 2012, this is the first time we’ve received an award on a national scale. We were also nominated for Champion Beer of Britain last year, so to get third place in our category this year is a great step up.
Moonshine was one of our first beers we ever produced all the way back in 1996, and it’s now regarded as something of a Sheffield icon. Equating to just over half of our output, it’s well and truly right at the heart of what we do as a brewery, and to see it receiving recognition nationwide really does warm the cockles!
The CAMRA Champion Beer of Britain award is widely regarded as one of the most prestigious real ale competitions in the world. The build up to the awards lasts for almost a year, with the final judging rounds held at GBBF (the Great British Beer Festival) – the UK’s largest real ale festival. Anyone visiting the festival at Olympia in London this weekend can find our award-winning Moonshine on Bar B2, and of course it’s widely available around Sheffield and beyond too!
Mine’s a pint… cheers!
