Triple-win for The Kite Brewery at SIBA Awards

KiteBrewery_290x141Today’s on-trade division member The Kite Brewery has won three awards – Gold, Silver and Bronze – at the recent Society of Independent Brewers Association (SIBA) Awards 2015.

Wales’s largest independent distributor of cask ale scooped Gold in the Best Bitters and Pale Ales category for Jemima’s Pitchfork, a pale, refreshing crisp beer, ABV 4.4%, which went on to compete with 260 other lines to pick up Silver in the Overall Champion of the Competition category.

The brewery’s hoppy Thunderbird, a light, citrusy ale, ABV 4.5%was awarded Bronze in the Premium Bitters and Pale Ales category, resulting in a hugely triumphant triple win for the business.

Managing director of The Kite Brewery Rhys Anstee said, “We are absolutely thrilled with the result – SIBA is well-respected in our sector and to win three Awards at once is incredible.”

Jemima’s Pitchfork, which picked up two of the three awards, was originally introduced as a seasonal beer for three months and after being successfully received, has been added to the core range and will be made available all-year-round. To celebrate the triple-win, The Kite Brewery is offering all customers a special deal on the award-winning lines – buy any 2 x 9s for £70 each.

The next focus for Anstee is to introduce craft ale kegs. “We’ve just invested £16K on equipment to start offering craft ale kegs in addition to cask ales. It will be a huge growth area for us,” he says.
