Allendale Brewery and Anarchy Brew Co celebrate after Siba success

BREWERS are celebrating after seeing their Northumberland ales named among the best beers in Britain.

Allendale Brewery’s APA took silver in the cask strong bitters and IPAs category at the Society of Independent Brewer’s BeerX conference in Sheffield, while Morpeth-based Anarchy Brew Co’s Anarchy lager took second place in the speciality beers section.

Anarchy co-owner Dawn Miles said she was very pleased to see her lager recognised on the national stage.

“It truly is a “special beer” and we believe its one of the best examples around,” she said. “And keg beer really gets our juices flowing.”
