Brewery wins Silver at International Beer Challenge

Wye Valley Brewery has been awarded a Silver medal for Dorothy Goodbody's Country Ale at the International Beer Challenge 2013. This competition is now in its 17th year and rewards quality and celebrates excellence.

With entries from over 30 countries, the competition is tough, judges study each beer in turn, considering the appearance, the aroma, the taste and the finish, before discussing their findings with other table members and reaching a consensus on which medal to award.

The panel of judges consisted of well known beer writers, publicans and brewers, they awarded 38 gold medals, 89 silver and 155 bronze.
