Wisbech brewer Elgood’s raised a glass in celebration after the brewery scooped a gold and silver medal in the Society of Independent Brewers’ (SIBA) national beer awards.

Elgood’s won the gold for its Cherry Wheat beer in the small pack category and silver in the keg beer competition for its Coolship Fruit.

The brewery, on North Brink, was commended by eighty judges at SIBAs National Beer Awards which was held recently at its BeerX event in Sheffield.

Elgood’s held off competition from sixty-four finalists in the small pack category and forty-five competitors in the keg.

Elgood’s trophy cabinet is growing for its Coolship range in particular, which won ‘Europe’s Best Sour Beer Lambic’ at the recent World Beer Awards and the silver for its Coolship at the Interntional Brewing Awards.
