News & EventsDetail
Elgood’s QE Cherry Wheat beer has scooped overall gold in the bottled & canned beer competition at the 2018 SIBA East Independent Beer Awards.
The awards, run by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), were held at Elgood’s before this years’ beer festival opening, and are judged by brewers and beer experts.
Elgood’s head brewer Alan Pateman, said: “This award is recognition of the hard work that has gone into developing our new-style beers which come from a completely new style of brewing.”
“Our unique, spontaneously fermented sour beers and fruited wheat beers are a new thing for many British drinkers but our Cherry wheat is sweeter and fruity and proving really popular thanks to its approachable, full fruity flavour.”
The finals of SIBA will be held in Liverpool next year. See the full article by John Elworthy in the Wisbech Standard.
The competition, in which four other Elgood’s products also won awards, took place immediately before the opening of the three-day Elgood’s beer festival. The “not for profit” festival featured over 150 beers from independent craft breweries and was attended by around 1,000 visitors. There was live music each night from local bands “Toadfish Bone”, “The Cherry Reds”, “Bewildered” and “The Rusty Relics”.
All proceeds from the festival, after the deduction of overheads, will be presented to the following local Charities:
- Suzanne’s Hedgehog Rescue
- SSAFA (Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen & Families Association)
- Mind Cambridgeshire, Peterborough & South Lincolnshire (CPSL)
- East Anglia Air Ambulance
- Meadowgate School
- Addenbrookes Charitable Trust
