West Berkshire Brewery (WBB) is delighted to announce that two of its flagship beers Good Old Boy and Maggs’ Magnificent Mild have won Gold in the London and South East Area Champion Beer of Britain awards.
Classic bitter Good Old Boy (4% ABV) won Gold to top the bitter category. First brewed back in 1995, Good Old Boy has been a best seller for the brewery ever since.
Maggs’ Magnificent Mild (3.8% ABV) was also named category winner in the London and South East Champion Beer of Britain Awards. Maggs’ Mild has been the highest award winning beer for the brewery receiving over 19 awards since it was first brewed by brewery founder, Dave Maggs.
As Good Old Boy and Maggs’ Magnificent Mild both won their categories they will also go forward to the Champion Beer of Britain finals which will be held at the Great British Beer Festival in August 2017.
The finals of the area competition took place after a year of beer tastings, tasting panels and nominations. Successful beers are submitted from these into the style final and are conventionally judged by a panel made up of journalists, fellow brewers, and a few CAMRA members.
Head Brewer at WBB, Will Twomey says “We are very proud of our range of beers and this achievement is a testament to the brewing team’s hard work and dedication. To be recognised for two of our beers in a fierce competition is a great feeling’.
