A BREWERY based in North Somerset has won a medal in an international competition.
Butcombe Brewery, based in Wrington, was awarded a bronze medal at the Brussels Beer Challenge held in Antwerp, Belgium.
The awards were set up to celebrate the beer industry, and 80 tasters tried 1,100 drinks from all over the world.
The drinks were judged for their characteristics and style in eight categories.
Geraint Williams, managing director of Butcombe Brewery, said: “These awards not only recognise innovation and talent in the brewing industry, they serve as a quality seal of approval awarded by industry experts.
“It is a global beer competition which provides us with the opportunity to set our excellent beers against the best in the world and once again Butcombe has not only risen the challenge, it has achieved great success.”
Butcombe won the award for its Brunel Atlantic IPA in the English IPA pale and amber ale category.
Butcombe, which is based in Coxs Green, was opened in 1978.
