Trio of Golds for Herefordshire Brewer

Peter Amor, Chairman of Wye Valley Brewery was delighted to come away from the SIBA Wales and West 2010 Beer Competition with three gold awards for his brewery’s beers.

The competition was held at the Ludlow Spring Festival in May, which celebrated great beers, bangers and bread.

Wye Valley Bitter, Dorothy Goodbody’s Golden Ale and Dorothy Goodbody’s Country Ale were awarded gold in their classes, and Dorothy Goodbody’s Country Ale, a 6.0% ruby ale, went on to win Overall Gold in the Bottled Beer category.

The Herefordshire brewer made a major investment 18 months ago, when they installed a state of the art bottling facility, giving them total control over the bottling of their beers.

Said Peter Amor, ‘We are always delighted to receive awards for our beers especially when judged by our peers, but these carry extra significance as they are a ‘stamp of quality’ for our new bottling line. We aim to gain more business in the future by offering to bottle beer for other brewers’
