RED SMIDDY won the Bronze Award in the BEST BITTERS CATEGORY after progressing through a series of regional and then national judging sessions. It was one of only 52 beers to take away a medal – a great achievement considering that over 1,400 beers entered the initial stages of the contest.
Brewery spokesperson, Karen Moore says, “We work hard to make our beers the best they can be and it’s fantastic to receive this public recognition. I’m grateful to everyone at the brewery, to the pubs who sell our beers and to our many loyal drinkers locally, for helping us to win this Award. We promise to go on producing our great beers for as long as there’s demand for them.”
Julian Grocock, chief executive of SIBA, said, “The quality of craft beers produced by SIBA brewers improves every year, so our Awards go to brewers who are truly ‘the best of the best’. KELBURN BREWERY’s skill, passion and dedication to creating great craft beer, make it a deserving winner.”
