Yorkshire coast brewery wins international beer awards

The team at a Yorkshire Wolds brewery is celebrating after winning two awards at the International Beer Challenge (IBC) 2022.

 Wold Newton-based Wold Top’s Marmalade Porter won a silver award in the Best Stout/Porter category, whilst Intuition won a bronze in the Best No/Low Alcohol Beer category in the global competition which attracts entries from 31 countries.

Wold Top’s Director and Head Brewer, Alex Balchin said: “Marmalade Porter is an established and best-selling beer in the Wold Top range, whereas Intuition was a year in development and marked our first foray into the low-alcohol market. 

“We’re over the moon that both beers have won these accolades in an international competition that is judged by experienced industry experts ranging from retailers, importers, publicans brewers to writers and flavour analysts.”

Launched in 2013, Marmalade Porter, 5.0% alc, is a complex, rich, dark porter with a sweet malty base, overtones of bitter orange and hints of coffee and chocolate. Intuition is a citrusy, fruity, hop-forward low-alcohol (<0.5% alc) pale ale which is also gluten-free and vegan-friendly.

The award-winning beers are available online at woldtopbrewery.co.uk and from specialist independent retailers throughout the UK.
