West Berkshire Brewery Wins Wheat Challenge

News: July 2016

The Wheat Beer Challenge, a feature of this year’s Imbibe Live trade show, has been won by West Berkshire Brewery.

The Yattendon-based company claimed first prize with its Wheaty McWheat Face beer, a British take on the style featuring First Gold hops, Maris Otter barley in the 50:50 wheat/barley grist, and the brewery’s own yeast.

The win earns the team a seasonal listing in M&B’s Castle pubs and a trip for two to Pilsner Urquell in the Czech Republic. Other finalists in the competition were beers from Boss, Harviestoun, Little Beer Corp and Heavy Industry.
