Awards in 2020!

Yes Covid can stop and interrupt most things in 2020 but sorry it won’t stop Black Storm winning multiple awards this year.

Award 1: World Beer Awards

Our already double award wining Porter has picked up another award, this years its Bronze in the Porter category for Best Porter in the UK, although this year’s award isn’t the overall winner of the category unlike in 2018 when we did achieve this, with a new brewer and new brewhouse in place since 2018, I’m over the moon we have been able to maintain a podium position.

Award winning products, especially when judged via a blind tasting panel of experts such as the World Beer Awards allows us to understand where our beer sits on a national and international level.

I don’t take any Kudos for this Award though, it is completely down to our Head Brewer Adam, who works so hard and so diligently to brew the best beer he possibly can, and this award confirms that his hard work and dedication is recognised across the world.

Award 2: North England Prestige Awards – Independent Brewery of the Year!

Well what can I say, Independent Brewery of the Year! OMG! This award recognises the hard work that my team and I constantly put into our business, to bring the guests and customers excellent beers and hospitality across our venues, and the brewery as a whole.

To receive such an award in our third year of trading has had such a positive impact on both myself and the whole team in such an otherwise grey and depressing year.

I hope you will stand with me and raise a glass to celebrate our 2020 success and help me portray my immense thanks to the whole team for their hard work and dedication, in what has been an immensely challenging year.

Here’s to continued success in 2021 and beyond.
