Castle Rock’s Harvest Pale has won Supreme Champion at the 2010 Great British Beer Festival in London, beating Timothy Taylors Landlord and Surrey Hills Hammer Mild.

The judging took place on Tuesday 3rd August and on presenting the award Roger Protz said “Against intense competition from eight other brilliant beers, Castle Rock Harvest Pale stood out and was a unanimous choice for all the judges for its great blend of tangy hop and juicy malt. A wonderfully refreshing and complex beer.”

Company Chairman, Chris Holmes paid tribute to the brewery’s head brewer Adrian Redgrove and his team, saying “We’ve won dozens of awards over the past 5 or 6 years, but the best moments have been since our new brewer, Adrian Redgrove, who started 4 years ago, began producing high quality, consistent beer.

All Castle Rock pubs will be having a celebration party over the coming weeks with a special promotion on Harvest Pale and an opportunity to meet key brewery staff. Look out for details in your favourite Castle Rock pub.
