Geoff said: “The whole team here is incredibly proud to be recognised with these awards, for the bars we operate, the beers we make, and for the brewery as a whole.

“Following our 10-year anniversary in 2019, and with a large expansion project and new packaging line just commissioned, it’s great to have such wonderful positive feedback from the wider beer community, around the world.”
