Hunmanby based Wold Top Brewery is celebrating after one of its beers won another industry award.

Following its success at the World Gluten Free Beer Awards, the brewery’s Marmalade Porter won a bronze award in the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) regional Independent Keg Beer Awards.

Marmalade Porter was one of 450 beers from eight SIBA regions that were judged across 10 categories and won the award in the Keg Porters, Stouts, Old Ales, Strong Milds and Strong Brown Ales category for the North East SIBA region.

The beer also scooped an award at the World Gluten Free Beer Awards in Rimini, Italy, recently.

This competition judged 46 beers from eight countries in the category.

Marmalade Porter is described as having overtones of bitter orange and hints of coffee and chocolate.

Brewery manager Alex Balchin said: “It’s fantastic news that Marmalade Porter can win an award in a worldwide gluten free competition one month and then win an industry award as a mainstream beer the next.”
