Oxfordshire-based brewer Hook Norton has picked up the top honours for two of its beers at the World Beer Awards.

Hook Norton Double Stout and Hook Norton Hooky Bitter were both recognised by the award's international judging panel.

Hooky Bitter picked up gold in Europe's Best English Bitter category.

Hook Norton managing director James Clarke said: "I am delighted that our bottled beers have been honoured by this prestigious competition.

"To win these awards reflects the hard work and commitment of all the staff who work at the brewery."
