Devizes-based brewer Wadworth is celebrating after two of its most popular ales, Bishops Tipple and Old Timer were awarded a Silver Tasting Medal in the 2015 International Beer Challenge.
Rewarding quality and celebrating excellence, the annual International Beer Challengereceives entries from more than 30 countries worldwide, boasting some of the shrewdest beer judges in the land – including retailers, publicans, brewers, writers and flavour analysts.
As one of Wadworth’ oldest ales, Bishops Tipple proved just why it’s stood the test of time, impressing the judging panel with its intriguing aroma of delicate Saaz and spicy Styrian Goldings hops. A strong citrus ale that is deceptively light in colour it boasts a lingering hop finish that is enjoyed by real ale lovers all year round.
And with its rich, full bodied flavour and smooth finish seasonal classic Old Timer also tantalised the judges taste buds. Popular for over 50 years and still true to the original recipe this strong, malty ale is the perfect winter warmer.
 ‘’We are extremely proud of all our beers’’ says Wadworth Product Marketing Manager Ellie Alderton. ‘’ It takes the best ingredients, time honoured brewing methods and years of experience to brew the finest ales, so it’s fantastic that some of our oldest ales have received this recognition.”
Bishops Tipple is available to the trade in cask and 500ml bottles all year round, with Old Timer also available in cask December-January and in conditioned 500ml bottles throughout the year. For more information visit
