Hobsons’ haul

Hobsons Brewery started the year with a spring in their step, bringing home five regional CAMRA awards at the annual Birmingham ceremony. Hobsons dominated the bottled category, with two of their top-selling beers awarded gold medals for taste, with Old Henry taking top spot in the Dark Ale category and Old Prickly, which donates to the British Hedgehog Preservation Society, gleaning gold in the Light Ales category, followed by Town Crier with silver. Hobsons’ most decorated beer, Mild, picked up a bronze in the Mild category, adding to over 20 awards since it was first brewed in 2002, including Champion Beer of Britain. Twisted Spire collected a bronze in the Golden Ale category.

Founder of the Cleobury Mortimer company Nick Davis says, “Great products start with great ingredients and our award-winning beers are all brewed with locally grown Maris Otter malting barley. Over the past five years, we’ve been championing a programme to develop a network of local farmers to grow this premium barley for us and the majority of our hops are also grown within seven miles of the brewery.”
