We are delighted to announce that our glorious Box Steam ale, Golden Bolt, has struck gold in the 2017 BBI Drinks Competition.
Launched only 10 months ago, Golden Bolt (ABV 3.8%), a fantastically fruity ale made with Wai-iti hops, took home the gold medal in the Ales, Lagers & Ciders ABV 1.5% - 3.9% category in the latest awards.
Created by Master Brewer, Philip Downes, Golden Bolt is one of our lower ABV ales and increasingly one of our most popular. Packing a flavour filled punch it’s a delightful session beer that many of our customers are enjoying.
Commenting on the achievement Ed Binsted, BBI President, said: “Sometimes the lower strength ales can lack flavour and taste similar, but this year Box Steam’s ‘Golden Bolt’ clearly stood out and thoroughly deserved to be awarded gold.”
We’ll receive a medal and certificate at the annual BBI Dinner on Thursday 9th November in London, which celebrates its Diamond Jubilee this year.
