We’re over the moon this week with news of our silver medal in the prestigious International Beer Challenge.
This ranks us among the very best in the beer fraternity and is a fabulous reward for everybody here at the brewery.
The silver medal was awarded for the outstanding design and packaging of our XO Barley Wine. The beer is one in our Vintage Collection, specially brewed this year to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Wincle Beer Co.
The high strength beers; XO Barley Wine, Russian Imperial Stout, Colonial Pale Ale and Abbey Ale each has an alcohol content above 8.0% ABV and comes in a 330ml bottle.
We worked closely with local branding and PR specialists This* agency to develop the packaging. This included naming of the beers and creating the family of four distinctive bottle labels.
This* agency has worked with us since our start-up in 2008. During which time it has built websites, provided design, PR and social media services and played a big part in our success.
All that remains now is to enjoy the beer which is in stock at the brewery shop.
We do hope you like it!
