We ended the year in buoyant mode, collecting 4 awards at the West Midlands CAMRA Champion Beer of the Year 2013.   The awards were held on 29th December at The Barton Arms, Birmingham. 

Introducing our new head brewer – Gareth Bateman, collecting the award for Butty Bach, 2nd place in the Real Ale in a bottle, light category. 

Dorothy Goodbody’s Golden Ale, and Dorothy Goodbody’s Wholesome Stout also received a 2nd place awards in the Golden Ale category and Real Ale in a bottle, dark categories respectively.  HPA won 3rd in the Best Bitter Category.

Head Brewer, Gareth joined the brewery in the summer as Jimmy Swan has become Operations Director, a new role at our brewery. Gareth brings with him a wealth of experience with over 10 years in the industry at several regional and multinational breweries.  With exciting plans for the brewery in 2014 and beyond, Gareth has promised us many more awards to follow!
