Sentinel Brewhouse in Sheffield won a gold medal in the Society of Independent Brewers Association’s regional keg competition with its Orange Stout – made with a Ravifruit Ambient Purée.
The beer came out top in the speciality dark beer category in the north-east regional section of the craft keg competition in the SIBA Independent Beer Awards 2018 in March.
The mandarin purée was purchased from Keylink, where the team are proud to see their product excel in the beer market as well as cocktails, drinks and chocolate.
Sentinel’s head brewer Alex Barlow and his assistant brewers Louis Kempson-Seaton and Lewis Burgin told Keylink: “We celebrated in style and toasted our award with an appropriate glass of Orange Stout. Thanks to Keylink for our continuous supply of Ravifruit mandarin.”
The 4.2% ABV Orange Stout is part of the core range of beers from Sentinel Brewhouse. It is a classic Irish dry stout, rich in coffee-roast malts with a lingering hoppy orange aftertaste.
Judged by brewers and industry experts and organised by SIBA at its flagship BeerX event in Liverpool, the awards ran across a huge range of beer style categories from porter and stout to lager and pale ale.
