Beer Oscar winners!

A local brewery has received a spectacular nine awards at the ‘beer Oscars’. Salopian Brewery based near Shrewsbury were presented the awards by Campaign for Real Ale’s (CAMRA).

Darwin’s Origin took top spot in in the Best Bitter category, while Oracle Ale took first place in the Golden Beer category and Kashmir was voted the best real ale in a bottle. To round off the success, Golden Thread was voted West Midlands Beer of the Year, scoring the best marks of all the beers tasted.

The winning beers will now go forward to the Champion Beer of Britain Competition, which will take place at the Great British Beer Festival in London over the summer. Managing director Wilf Nelson said, “It is great to see CAMRA promoting the excellence of Shropshire beer at a time when lots of rural and local pubs are suffering with Dry January.”
