West Berkshire Brewery wins two awards


Two of West Berkshire Brewery’s (WBB) flagship beers have won gold in the London and South East Area Champion Beer of Britain awards.

Good Old Boy and Maggs’ Magnificent Mild both won their categories and will now go forward to the Champion Beer of Britain finals, held at the Great British Beer Festival in August 2017.

“We are very proud of our range of beers and this achievement is a testament to the brewing team’s hard work and dedication,” Will Twomey, head brewer at WBB, said. “To be recognised for two of our beers in a fierce competition is a great feeling’.

Classic bitter Good Old Boy (4% ABV) won gold to top the bitter category. First brewed back in 1995, Good Old Boy has been a best seller for the brewery ever since.

Maggs’ Magnificent Mild (3.8% ABV) was also named category winner in the London and South East Champion Beer of Britain Awards. Maggs’ Mild has been the highest award-winning beer for the brewery, receiving over 19 awards since it was first brewed by brewery founder Dave Maggs.

The finals of the area competition took place after a year of beer tastings, tasting panels and nominations, judged by a panel of journalists, fellow brewers and a few CAMRA members.
