DRINKS produced by an Oswestry brewery have recently been recognised on a national scale.

Stonehouse Brewery had two of its products presented with a total of four awards at the national stage of the Society of Independent Brewers awards.

The brewery, based near Maesbury Industrial Estate, had previously won one national award back in 2013, but after success at the regional awards this year, they pushed onto the national awards once again and came away with three silver awards and a bronze.

In the bottled British dark beer category, Stonehouse’s Ballast was awarded with a silver as well as being awarded a silver in British beer in a keg category.

The Whitbier product by Stonehouse was also recognised with a silver for its in-keg beer and a bronze for its bottled product.

Alison Parr attended the awards evening and spoke of her delight.

“It’s brilliant,” she said.

“We’re very very proud to be recognised with these awards.

“The fact we’re rated so highly means an awful lot.

“To be given four awards for products in kegs and in bottles is great news for us as it shows we’re doing things right across the board and not just in one aspect.

“A lot of work goes into everything we produce here, so to have that hard work recognised is really nice.”

Alison gave a mention to the awards and spoke highly of the industry in which they work.

She added: “The awards ceremony takes place at a trade show every year.

“It usually takes place over the course of three days and it’s nice to go along and catch up with other people in the industry.

“It’s a very friendly industry so we like to go – it’s a good opportunity to meet up with different brewers and suppliers.

“It’s a very friendly industry so it’s nice to see what everyone does differently and to share tips with one another.”
