Wisbech brewers Elgood have received a silver medal for the latest addition to their range of sour beers.

The family firm received recognition for its Coolship mango sour.

Alan Pateman, Elgood’s head brewer, a judge at the event, said, “We are very pleased indeed to receive yet another award for one of our Sour Beers. “As one of the first UK breweries to develop a Belgian-style, naturally fermented beer, we have been delighted with the continued success of these products in winning prestigious awards.

“This is, of course, reflected in the popularity of the beers in the market place.”

Judged by brewers and industry experts and organised by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) at their flagship BeerX event in Liverpool, the awards run across a huge range of beer style categories in cask, craft keg, bottle and can.

Elgood’s Coolship mango sour was awarded silver in the speciality light beers category.
