Bronze Award for our Saison at the National Independent Beer Awards

Ferry Ales Brewery took home a Bronze award for its Saison, Farmhouse Ale, in the National Independent Beer Awards Cask Specialty Light Beer category, which took place at SIBA BeerX in Liverpool yesterday.

In September 2018 Farmhouse Ale was awarded a Gold in the regional competitions meaning it went to the national finals this week. Farmhouse Ale is a refreshing Saison which is golden pale in colour with a fruity taste and subtle spice finish. The aromas are of citrus fruit and spice.

SIBA Competitions Chair Guy Sheppard, a brewer himself at Exe Valley in the South West, congratulated all the winners on their huge achievement:

“The SIBA Independent Beer Awards represent the culmination of a year’s worth of regional awards in the run up to the National Finals held here at BeerX UK in Liverpool. These really are the best of the best independent craft beers in cask, keg, bottle and can, and I would like to congratulate all of the winners. Very well done!”

“The team at Ferry Ales Brewery are delighted to have won bronze at the National level. For a young brewery it is huge honour to have our beers recognized at this level especially when we are up against the best of breweries from  the 800+ breweries across all the regions in the UK.”
