As you can probably imagine, we were thrilled to bits to hear that our beers had picked up three awards in the recent SIBA Digital Beer Awards 2020.
SIBA is the Society of Independent Brewers, the trade association for small breweries in the UK. Amongst the many benefits they offer their members, they organise annual regional beer competitions across a wide variety of beer styles and packaging formats, with the champion brews proceeding to a national competition held as part of their annual conference in March.
Clearly, organising numerous beer competitions across the country, with face-to-face judging, was never going to be possible this year. So instead they organised for breweries to send their beers to a central hub before sorting and distributing them out to a select team of experienced beer judges. Tasting and scoring was carried out by the judging panels at home via Zoom, and the results consolidated online.
