NATIONAL SILVER FOR BLONDE
20th March 2017
IT'S DOUBLE TROUBLE FOR YORK BREWERY AS BLONDE STRIKES SILVER IN SIBA NATIONAL BEER COMPETITION.
Following on from success at the International Brewing Awards with Otherside IPA, last Friday saw Blonde take its turn in the limelight, by picking up as Silver category medal at the SIBA National Beer Competition 2017.
With its fruity, creamy and famously refreshing flavour, Blonde (3.9%) already boasts a Gold category and Bronze overall medals awarded at last years??? regional SIBA competition. It was further recognized for its excellence at Beer X in Sheffield on March 19th. Judged against a strong field of Standard Bitters & Pale Ales category gold medal winners from the other 7 regions, the awarding of 2nd place silver marks the completion of a rather sweet hat trick!
Exclusive use of Pale malt leads to the light colour and creaminess of the ale and the renowned Citra hops provide the light bitterness. Blonde pairs well with chicken and fish dishes and is generally a very popular thirst-quencher.
Neil Arden, Brand Manager said, "Blonde has long been a favourite at the brewery but has been a relatively well kept secret with hop supply sadly limiting production. We???ve solved that now and have made it available year round and the recent glut of awards shows that was the right choice.???
