Golden Bolt Grabs Silver in South West SIBA Awards

Our winning streak continues! We’re excited to announce that our newest creation, and our first brewed for the popular keg market has won again. Already award-winning, Golden Bolt IPA has earned a silver medal in SIBA’s South West regional keg heats in the ‘Standard Bitters & Pale Ales up to 4.4%’ category.

Golden Bolt is the latest edition to our famous and much-loved range of ales, and we’re proud to have stretched our beer making skills further than ever. A refreshingly hoppy Pale Ale, Golden Bolt lives up to its name – light in colour with a surprisingly original fruity note, achieved with the edition of wai-iti hops. Carefully crafted by our Master Brewer Philip Downes and his team, 3.8% Golden Bolt is a perfect session beer.

We’ve been blown away by the response, and it’s not just the critics and judges who’ve been impressed. Golden Bolt is proving to be a real hit with landlords and drinkers alike.
