Hawkshead Brewery's Windermere Pale has been named Champion Beer of the North West.
The beer is on the march to the Champion Beer of Britain finals after being declared the best beer in the North West by CAMRA (Campaign For Real Ale) at its Liverpool Beer festival, on Wednesday (February 15).
Windermere Pale has been given multiple awards by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) since it was launched in 2009 and a silver medal from “the Oscars of the brewing industry”, the International Brewing Awards. It is a low gravity (3.5% ABV) hoppy session beer.
This is the second time Hawkshead Brewery has had the North West champion beer after “Cumbrian 5 Hop” won the title in 2013, and the 7th year in a row that Hawkshead Brewery has had a beer in the Champion Beer of Britain finals.
