Windermere Pale is Champion Beer of the North West.
The Hawkshead Brewery beer is on the march to the Champion Beer of Britain finals after being declared the best beer in the North West by CAMRA (Campaign For Real Ale) at its Liverpool Beer festival, on Wednesday night.
Windermere Pale has been given multiple awards by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) since it was launched in 2009 plus it has a silver medal from “the Oscars of the brewing industry,” the International Brewing Awards. It is a low gravity (3.5% ABV) hoppy session beer. The signature hop is Citra.
This is the second time Hawkshead has had the North West champion beer – “Cumbrian 5 Hop” won the title in 2013. As a result this will be the 7th year in a row that Hawkshead Brewery has had a beer in the Champion Beer of Britain finals.
