Flack Manor brewery was thrilled to bring back home to Romsey a National Gold Award for Romsey Gold in bottles, from the prestigious BeerX trade event in Liverpool in March, a national event organised by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA). Romsey Gold in bottles had previously won the SIBA Regional event in July and as a Regional Gold winner, the ale is automatically entered into the BeerX national competition. Bottled Romsey Gold won out of 8 regional gold winners in the category ‘Small Pack Speciality Light Beers’.
The SIBA Regional Awards for Keg Beers were also held at the same BeerX event and there was further delight when Flack’s ‘Gold’ premium craft beer won Silver for the South East region in the ‘Keg Premium Bitters and Pale Ales category’ amidst stiff competition.
With a Gold and Silver, Flack Manor experienced a landmark of a day – a true testament to the dedication and energy put into every barrel and bottle of ale and keg beer that leaves the brewery.
Commented Nigel Welsh, Managing Director of Flack Manor:
“This event is so very important for independent brewers like Flack Manor brewery because it’s a way, albeit tough and highly competitive, to gain national recognition. Winning a National Gold for our Romsey Gold in bottles shows appreciation of the heart and soul that we put into our brewing, into all of our ales, without compromise and without succumbing to fads and fashions. We’re proud to bring this accolade back to our home town of Romsey!”
This award winning bottled ale can be purchased from the ‘Flak’ Shack Brewery Shop on the brewery site on Romsey Industrial Estate.
