Places to stay, things to do, good food and drink
Proving, once again, that she’s of superior taste, Wye Valley Brewery’s Dorothy Goodbody has triumphed in this year’s International Beer Challenge (IBC) competition.
The International Beer Challenge is Europe’s premier packaged beer competition and each year the IBC discovers and rewards the finest beers from across the globe.
More than 630 beers from 30 countries entered this year’s challenge, which was judged by UK and European beer experts. Entries included brews from Cambodia, Brazil, South Africa and Japan, as well as beers from renowned beer-making nations, such as Belgium, Holland and Germany. Each beer was tasted blind by the expert panel and medals were awarded to the exceptional entries.
Chairman of the judges, Jeff Evans, said: “Not only have the number of beers entered rocketed, so has the standard of the entries.” Mr Evans added, “Our outstanding judges have awarded more gold medals than ever, which is testimony to the quality of beers that are now available around the world.”
It is therefore a huge achievement for Herefordshire’s best-loved brewery to be awarded with not one, but three medals!
Also awarded were Dorothy Goodbody’s Pedal Pusher and Wholesome Stout, which both achieved Bronze medals.
To celebrate this latest awards success, Wye Valley Brewery will be offering 15% discount on Dorothy Goodbody’s Country Ale, Pedal Pusher and Wholesome Stout, which customers will be able to redeem online or in the brewery shop from Thursday 20th to Monday 31st August 2015.
