National Beer Awards

National Beer Awards!

Last week our beers won awards at not only regional level, but also in a national competition.

Very briefly to explain how the SIBA beer awards work. SIBA stands for the Society of Independent Brewers and exists to represent the interests of the growing number of independent breweries in Britain. You can find more info about them here - https://www.siba.co.uk/about-siba/.

Each year, SIBA holds regional beer competitions for cask, keg and bottled/canned beer. Breweries can enter beers into their regional competitions, with the winning beers moving forward to the national finals, held at BeerX, SIBA's annual beer and brewing trade event. Here they hold not only the finals of the competition, but also the AGM, talks, seminars and panels.

Brewers have to enter their beers into a category that represents the specific beer's style and strength, with judges then tasting comparable beers.

Rebellion falls into the Midlands region and last week our regional competition for keg beer took place. We entered three of our keg beers. 24 Carat, Black and Lager.

Ed Bates, our Head Brewer, "It's always nice to win awards. We think our beer is good but it's great to have that confirmed in a national competition. I'm most pleased to see us pick up a medal in every category that we entered as this shows that we are consistently meeting the high standards we set ourselves.

The production team are our own harshest critics so it's satisfying to see our beers recognised as it helps to reaffirm that all the extra effort we put in is worth it."

 

If you've not tried the award-winning lineup, they are available at the brewery to take home and enjoy with the exception of the keg Black which is exclusively available at our Tap Yard. You can also find Overthrow and lager served at many of trade customers in the area, use our beer finder to find who's taken recent delivery.

"Rebellion beer is my favourite brewery. I love the regular beers and many of the monthly specials. The brewery shop is one of my favourite places and members nights are an experience not to be missed."
"Visited the newly opened Tap Yard and was very impressed with everything from the way they’ve transformed the old containers into this fabulous bar, to the wide range of beers and other drinks available to enjoy within a great atmosphere."
"Fantastic place for a beer lover. Great selection of tasty, fresh ales in the shop and Tap Yard. Warm, friendly atmosphere and very kind and helpful staff."
"Had their beers before and liked them. Even better here at the Tap Yard because they've only travelled short distance across the premises. Staff friendly and very helpful. None of the "I only work here" vibe you can get in some places. Staff seemed only too willing to help. Brilliant!"
"Visited the newly opened tap room the other Saturday and was very impressed with everything including the wide range of beers and other drinks available to enjoy with a great atmosphere."
