East Yorkshire’s Great Newsome Brewery has had a double win at the prestigious World Beer Awards (announced today August 16), beating thousands of entrants from around the globe.

Winning Beers Again.

Both beers have been winners in previous years, but this is the first time both have won together.

Matthew Hodgson, managing director, said it was a day to feel proud of the achievements. “We are celebrating here at South Frodingham. From our point of view, the wins confirm our belief in the quality of the beers we all work so hard to produce. The panel of judges are very well respected so it means a lot to us.

“Frothingham Best has won a Gold for the UK in a very tough category so it’s excellent news for this bitter which is much loved by Great Newsome fans.

“We have been entering these awards since 2013 and each year it’s got more and more competitive in terms of the amount of entries and the quality, and we are now up against some big breweries.”

Since starting out in 2007, Great Newsome has developed a reputation for classic easy-drinking ales with a modern twist and has built a loyal following.

It produces more than 20 beers annually in cask and bottles, and supplies to pubs and retailers around Yorkshire, the UK and Europe, as well as selling from its brewery shop, both at the farm and online.
