A brewery in Enfield has won big at a prestigious awards.

The Beerblefish Brewing Company Limited was awarded 2-star Great Taste awards, which means judges dubbed the product above and beyond delicious, for each of its 1820 Porter and 1892 IPA, and a 1-star Great Taste award, which means judges dubbed it a drink that delivers fantastic flavour, for its Pangalactic Pale Ale.

Judged by over 500 of the most demanding palates, belonging to food critics, chefs, cooks, restaurateurs, buyers, retailers and producers, as well as a whole host of food writers and journalists, Great Taste is widely acknowledged as the most respected food accreditation scheme for artisan and speciality food producers.

James Atherton, Managing Director of Beerblefish, said: “This was our first time entering the Great Taste Awards and we’re absolutely thrilled to have achieved such success in our inaugural outing. It’s a great honour to receive this recognition for our products – we’re really proud of the beer we create, so it’s wonderful to know that such esteemed judges value it, too.”

Recognised as a stamp of excellence among consumers and retailers alike, Great Taste values taste above all else, with no regard for branding and packaging. Whether it is vinegar, granola, bacon or cheese being judged, all products are removed from their wrapper, jar, box or bottle before being tasted. The judges then savour, confer and re-taste to decide which products are worthy of a 1-, 2- or 3-star award.
