Butcombe Brewery plans to extend its range of drinks after winning a prize at the World Beer Awards in London.

Butcombe Original Bitter was launched in 1978 but its popularity has not diminished.

The Wrington brewers won a gold award after the bitter’s citric tones impressed the panel of industry experts.

Butcombe’s managing director Geraint Williams said: “Taking a gold award back to Bristol is a fantastic reward for the hard work we’ve put into our brewery over the last 40 years.

“It’s great to see the one of the West Country’s favourite beers achieving success on the world stage.

“As part of our classic range, Butcombe Original Bitter has the local heritage which really makes it special.

“It has been around for a long time and will remain a staple our widening and innovative range, as we plan to launch an additional five new beers this year to cater for ever-changing tastes.”
