A BREWERY in Codrington is celebrating winning a top national award for one of its best-selling beers.

Cotswold Spring Brewery’s Old Sodbury Mild has been named Supreme Champion in the cask category by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA).

The beer had already won the regional award but was announced winner of the national title at a ceremony in Sheffield last week.

Mark Frankcom, of Cotswold Spring Brewery, said: “It is an extraordinary accolade to be judged the best cask beer by our peers at this great beer competition.

“We’re very proud of (Old Sodbury Mild) OSM, which is based on a traditional local recipe and produced from 100 per cent malted ingredients.”

A panel of 100 brewers, industry experts, licensees and beer enthusiasts assessed the 300 finalist beers.

SIBA chief executive Julian Grocock said: “With close to 800 brewers now within SIBA’s membership, competition for a medal is intense at both regional heats and the national final.

“To win a place at the final judging at BeerX is an achievement in itself and we applaud all our finalist brewers as well as the medal and trophy winners.”
