Even more awards!

We're delighted to have taken home seven awards from the SIBA Scotland competition 2016 yesterday. The mixture of gold, silver and bronze titles (but mostly gold!) takes our total awards haul to 112 (unless we've missed any - we probably have) since Rob started brewing in 2005.

Brewer Butch Lynch (pictured in red) was flown down to Glasgow to attend the competition and it's a good job he did too. We'll get him a branded Swannay shirt next time (and some different shoes too, maybe).

Here's the full list of what we won!

Overall Champion Cask Beer of the Competition // Island Hopping // GOLD

Standard Milds & Brown Ales // Dark Munro // SILVER

Standard Bitters & Pale Ales // Island Hopping // GOLD

Best Bitters & Pale Ales // Scapa Special // GOLD
