Bishop Nick scooped THREE SIBA Awards at SIBA East Beer Competition 2015 this week.

Embers (Amber Ale) got SILVER in the Cask Beer category for Standard Bitters and Pale Ales.  This limited edition beer is still available in 500ml bottle and a small amount left in cask.  It is our Autumn bonfire of a beer.

Our Martyr IPA which always proves very popular with our regular stockists and outlets was awarded BRONZE in the Small Pack category (bottled beer) for Strong Bitters & Pale Ales and BRONZE for cask too.

Beers entered for the SIBA Awards are blind tasted by a panel and the competition is increasingly tough.  The categories we were recognised in are arguably the most hotly contested so we’re thrilled.

Nelion Ridley collected the awards on behalf of his team at the ceremony at Elgoods, Wisbech, Cambridge on Wednesday 23rd September and rubbed shoulders with fellow Essex brewers who also took home some gongs – notably Brentwood Brewing Company, Wibblers, Farmers Ales and Nethergate. It was a good result for the county. Craft Ales are good and strong in Essex.

A full set of results can be found at the SIBA website

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]Embers is back just like a comforting cable-knit jumper. (AND IT’S JUST WON A SILVER SIBA AWARD!!!)

As the trees drop their leaves and the nights draw in, this amber ale will keep you properly toasty. Bramling Cross is a hop as British as our Bishop, as earthy as a golden harvest and as smooth as runny honey.  So pull up a pew, fill up your tankards and savour this bonfire of a beer.

Embers is available in cask and 500ml bottles across our outlets, online and in our brewery shop on East Street, Braintree.  Don’t leave it too late to order yours![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]

First up England vs Fiji this Friday. GET THE BEERS IN!!!

Further information:
Cask-conditioned ales needs a little time to settle (12hrs approx) before serving. Keep in a cool positon and ask our Bishop Nick staff about handling but pretty straight forward. The minicasks once tapped need to be consumed within 2-3 days (tough one!!) but you’ve got a couple of weeks to play with the minipins and polypins.

Try and allow 48hrs notice when you order your take home beer but we’ll be as accommodating as we can.
We won’t let you miss a match!

You are eligible for prize draw entry with each purchase so buy a minicask for each England game and imagine how that will increase your chances!

Your brewing experience will give you (or a friend) hands-on interaction with the whole process alongside our experienced brewers. Get here early, grab a cuppa and get your hands dirty. Savour the aroma and learn a bit about what goes in to making a traditional East Anglian session bitter. We’ve six generations of knowledge and we’re happy to share. We tend to brew Tuesdays and Fridays so will slot you in to suit.
