SOUTHPORT BREWERY WIN SILVER AWARD at the S.I.B.A. BEER Competition 2013 October 28th, 2013 admin Latest News Latest Uncategorized Shares Comments Last week Paul Bardsley from Southport Brewery was delighted to be presented with a SILVER AWARD at the S.I.B.A. beer competition in Staveley. Paul’s beer, Dark Night was awarded second place in the Mild category from a host of beers brewed by brewers from the North west of England. The popular mild from Southport Brewery is named Dark Night to reflect the weather conditions and mood of a tragic night when a ship called the Mexico got into serious difficulty off the Southport coast. This is our most significant award since 2009, when our Golden Sands ale won Champion Best Bitter at the Great British Beer Festival. Receiving this award is a huge pat on the back for a local business in an industry usually associated with large multinational brewers. Paul is a passionate cask conditioned real ale fan and brews a quality product, using the finest Maris Otter and Lager malt sourced from British farms, mixed with hops gathered from hop growers throughout the world. This combination gives a blend of bitterness and flavour that make our beers taste different. Dark Night is available in casks and bottles.
