Nottingham’s Navigation Brewery were over the moon to pick up their first ever awards for champion keg beers yesterday.
The Independent Keg Beer Awards results were announced at Beer X 2020 in Liverpool – the annual trade show of SIBA, the Society of Independent Brewers.
It was a clean sweep for the brewery who walked away with an award for both beers they entered into the competition. Both beers were un-fined and vegan friendly. Hazy IPA picked up a silver in the Keg Session IPA category, which includes beers up to 4.3% ABV. The popular American IPA walked away with a bronze in its category – Keg Premium Pale Ales, between 4.4% and 5.4% ABV.
“At Navigation we have long been known for our cask ale, but this is the first time we have entered any kegs into a competition,” said Head Brewer Dom Flynn. “Our two entries both received awards in extremely competitive categories, which is amazing. I must give credit to the brewery team for the effort they put in day in and day out to create consistently award-winning beer.”
These latest accolades are the tenth and eleventh SIBA awards the brewery has received in less than two years, showing the Navigation ethos of creating beers using top quality ingredients really does achieve a great finished product.
Navigation Brewery launched in 2011, housed in a 19th century stable block next to the Trent Navigation Inn on Meadow Lane, Nottingham. As well as producing a wide range of permanently available and seasonal cask ales, we are one of very few craft breweries with the capacity and expertise to brew, filter & keg our craft range onsite, ensuring the quality and consistency of our beer is always at the highest standards.
Brewed with American hops, which give a zesty orange aroma, this refreshing ale tastes almost resinous. The powerful aromatic elements make it crisp and pleasantly bitter. A pint to order when you need serious revitalisation.
This is a light and fragrant ale which is dominated by the scents of spring – cherry blossom and acacia. It is in a delicate balance of floral notes and bitterness, which fades to a whisper on the palate as you drink it.
