Slater’s Ales took home the Gold for 1 Hop in the ‘Bottle Can Session IPA up to 4.3%’ catagory at the SIBA National Independent Beer Awards, which took place at BeerX in Liverpool last week.
They also picked up bronze awards for Premium (Bottle Can British Beer up to 4.4% catagory) and Haka in the Bottle/Can Premium Pas 4.4% to 5.4% category.
“Judges had a tough job separating the pack as the standard was extremely high once again. The winners from the SIBA competition are officially the best independent craft beers in the UK, something brewers should be extremely proud of.” Ian Fozard, SIBA Chairman.
The SIBA National Independent Beer Awards judged a huge range of beers across a number of styles in separate cask, keg and bottle & can competitions. As the awards are judged mostly by brewers, industry experts and beer journalists the SIBA Independent Beer Awards are very much seen as the prestigious ‘Brewers’ choice Awards’ by the industry.
