A grand day out in York for BAD Co.
It’s not just us that think our beers are great.
When Head Brewer, Paul Holden-Ridgway, suggested that we have a day out in York, we thought that a trip to Betty’s was on the cards. No such luck, Paul had other ideas. As it turned out, Paul had a very good idea. “Let’s go to a beer festival!” he said. So we did.
The York Beer Festival (http://www.yorkbeerfestival.org.uk/) is the largest beer festival in the North of England, with over 450 real ales, 100 ciders and a foreign beer bar too and runs until Saturday 23rd September.
A great showcase for all the great beers from Yorkshire and beyond and competition is strong between the brewers to take home a medal or two. Our 5.2% IPA, Wild Gravity won a silver medal in the Pale Ale & IPA category. This was bettered by our special edition, coffee-infused brown ale, Burnt Ends, which won the top prize in the Dark Beer category. But there was still better to come. The overall champion beer award went to Dazed & Confused and is the only beer from the show to be entered into the national championships which takes place next year.
Well done Paul, that really was a good idea.
