It’s been four months since we announced three wins at the SIBA Midlands Independent Beer Awards, and that’s three more in the bag! Safe to say, the good news never gets old.

Both In Bloom and Army of Me (winning Silver and Bronze in their respective categories) are currently sold out. Hopefully you got a chance to try them! Oatmeal Stout is now part of our permanent range, available in cask and keg in our pubs and beyond.


Our Latest Awards:

In Bloom • 4.5% ABV •  SILVER

Category: Cask Pale Ale

Laurel, Citra and Sabro hops combine to bring fresh floral aromas, backed up by subtle earthy herbal notes. A full and rounded mouthfeel follows on the palette. Refreshing bitterness to finish, setting you up for your next sip.

Oatmeal Stout • 4.6% ABV • BRONZE

Category: Cask British Dark Beer

This delicious drop from our core range keeps going from strength to strength! Notes of dried fruit, roasted coffee and caramel are balanced by creamy oats, giving this stout it’s characteristic smooth and luxurious mouthfeel.

Army of Me • 3.4% ABV •  BRONZE

Category: Cask Session Pale Ale

Army of Me is a soft and pillowy pale ale with a delightfully low ABV. Dry hopped with an old school pairing of Citra and Cascade hops. Expect juicy tropical and citrus flavours, balanced by subtle pine notes.


The SIBA Independent Beer Awards span SIBA’s eight geographical locations, with the winners in each region moving forward to the National competition held at London’s BeerX. The judging panel is made up of brewers and industry experts, so the award-winning beers are considered “brewers’ choice” for the UK.

Various categories are available in cask, keg, and small pack.

With a win for Oatmeal Stout at BeerX earlier this year, we’re really excited for what the future holds and we’re already looking forward to the next one.

Massive thanks to our brew team for constantly pushing the boat out with new and exciting recipes, while also managing to keep a steady flow of our core favourites available all year round. And big thanks to you guys, for being our loyal test subjects, and for always being down to sample a new drop!

See you at BeerX 2023.
