Craft Beer Award Presentation

The culmination of this year’s Food & Drink Awards took place at Tring Brewery earlier this month. Our Chairman presented certificates to the owners of Tring, Rebellion and Chiltern Breweries so that they now have a truly local award to add to their collections!

In order to seek out the best Chiltern Brewery, our judges visited five local breweries shortlisted from those nominated by the public to take a brewery tour, hear about their beginnings and their ambitions for the future and learn about their efforts to work in an environmentally friendly way. The most important part of the quest was the beer tasting in July where six experts bravely sampled 15 different beers.

The results were soon clear – Tring Brewery was not only winner for the North Chilterns, but overall winner. Chilterns Brewery is the Central Chilterns Champion, and Rebellion took the honours for the South Chilterns. Many congratulations to these three Craft Beer Heroes.

The Craft Beer Award is kindly sponsored by NFU Mutual.
