SIBA - Supreme Cask Champion '17

We are absolutely delighted to inform everyone of our success at this year's Society of Independent Brewers beer competition.

Caesar Augustus picked up Silver in the Standard Lager & Pilsner category but the real star of the show for us was our Williams Black which picked up Gold in the Standard Mild & Brown Ales category then went on to pick up Supreme Champion of the Cask Beer Competition.

Scott Williams was delighted to receive the award & said: “This was one of our very first beers we ever brewed, so for it to still be winning awards is amazing... Mild has an image as an older, more old-fashioned style but it’s a great beer. Maybe Mild is the new IPA.”

Ok maybe saying Mild is the new IPA is a bit of a stretch, but Williams Black has now become our most successful competition beer.

Once again Scottish beer did incredibly well in the competition, with our fellow Scottish brewers picking up over a third of the Gold awards, a great achievement for such a small country, there must be something in the water! 

Congratulations to all the other award winners, and of course our team here at Kelliebank for their tireless work and dedication.
