Success for Wye Valley at Industry Awards

At the 2009 SIBA Brewing Business awards Wye Valley Brewery were delighted to come away, not only with Best Launch for their limited edition beer Morgan Centenary Ale, which celebrated Morgan Motor Company’s centenary year, but also Overall Winner for their continued commitment to the proactive marketing of their beers.

Well known beer writer Pete Brown presented Wye Valley Brewery with their overall award.

The following was announced by Pete Brown... 'In a departure from previous years, our overall winner for 2009 has not been chosen from one of the category winners alone. The winning brewery has indeed won a category with one of its entries, but the judges decided to combine that achievement with the undoubted quality of its other entries, in recognition of a wide-ranging and extremely impressive overall commitment to the proactive marketing that must be utilised to compliment the brewing of exceptional beer. This really does represent what the SIBA Brewing Business Awards stand for.'

In response to the awards Peter Amor, brewery chairman said, ‘It is incredibly pleasing and satisfying to know that 25 years of dedication from a wonderful team of people has resulted in recognition’.

Needless to say, we were really chuffed to win these awards!
