Scottish Brewery Scoops Four Awards

The brewery’s five percent Wayfarer IPA took the top spot on the Strong Bitters category, with the 4.5% Golden Amber securing first place in the Speciality Beers section.

Bronze awards were also given to the ten percent Dark Island Reserve and the 4.9% Red Macgregor in the Premium Strong Beers and Bottled Bitter categories respectively.

Norman Sinclair, managing director of Sinclair Breweries Ltd, said, “To come away from such an important event with no less than four awards, two of which are gold, is quite an achievement and everyone at the brewery is immensely proud.

“We always enjoy pitting our beers against the best in the country and view these awards as confirmation we’re maintaining our very high standards. It’s also great to have the opportunity to share our range with everyone attending the Scottish Real Ale Festival,” he added.

The winning beers from the SIBA Scotland event will go through to next year’s National Beer Competition.
