A Wrington brewery has won a gold award at the World Beer Awards.
Butcombe Original Bitter was launched back in 1978 but its popularity has not diminished.
Butcombe Brewery picked up the gold award at a ceremony at Hilton London Olympia after the bitter’s tropical tones impressed a panel of industry experts.
Managing director Geraint Williams said: “Taking a gold award back to Bristol is a fantastic reward for the hard work we’ve put into our brewery over the last 40 years.
“It’s great to see one of the West Country’s favourite beers achieving success on the world stage. As part of our classic range, Butcombe Original has the local heritage which really makes it special.
