Drygate Brewery celebrates SIBA Scotland 2015 awards haul

Glasgow-based Drygate Brewery has won four awards at the SIBA (Society of Independent Brewers) Scotland Festival held earlier this month.

The brewer’s Seven Peaks Mosaic IPA, described as a ‘bold cacophony of Mosaic hop aromatics on a crisp malt backbone’, won gold in the Strong Bitters/Pale Ales on cask category before collecting silver in the overall Champion Beer of Scotland competition.

In the bottled category, Drygate's core range also picked up accolades including gold for Bearface Lager, a US-inspired hop heavy brew, in the Lager/Pilsner category, while Ax Man Rye IPA, a spicy red-hued IPA, won silver in the Strong Bitters/Pale Ale category.

Matt Corden, operations director, said: “I’m delighted with this win for the team at Drygate. Having launched our brewery just 18 months ago, this is the first time we’ve entered our brews for consideration in the SIBA awards.

“This is a superb collection of awards for our fledgling craft brewery and will further help put Drygate’s fearless beers on the map."
