The team at Derby Brewing Company are thrilled to announce that three of their CRAFTED range beers are now SIBA regional award winners. It was announced this week that Wild Bear – an aggressively hopped 5% IPA – has been awarded Gold at the SIBA Independent Keg Beer Awards 2018. Midnight Raven – a dark and robust 4.8% crafted porter – was given bronze in the same category. The two new accolades join Rock Python – a crisp 4.2% German pilsner – which won Silver in the 2017 awards. That makes it 3 out of the 5 beers in the CRAFTED range now with highly respected industry awards to their name. Derby Brewing Company launched their CRAFTED range in July 2017 as an exciting new development from the respected brewers who produce the multiple award winning ales Business As Usual, Hop Till You Drop and Quintessential.

Director Paul Harris said: “We are thrilled that SIBA have recognised the fantastic quality of these beers. Our brewing team is passionate about pushing the boundaries of taste and style and the five beers in our CRAFTED range demonstrate an exciting and unique mix of flavours.  It’s an honour that three of our CRAFTED beers have received these prestigious awards, showing they are up to the standard of our well respected and multi award winning core ale range.”

The CRAFTED range can be enjoyed in all Derby Brewing Company venues and is also sold in pubs across the country. The range can also be purchased in 330ml bottles from Derbyshire Co-operative supermarkets.
