February 6th 2020 - Even More Reason to Celebrate!

We are not usually ones to blow our own trumpet but when our passion for brewing authentic double drop ales is recognised by others, well, it would be rude not to give it a mention.

After our success last week, our London Porter, Old King Coel, has now been awarded Bronze in the Champion Winter Beer of Britain 2020.

Here's 'Old Rog' (right) collecting the award and looking very happy about it too!

31st January 2020 - Colchester Brewery Comes Out on Top!

We had great success this week at Colchester Brewery. Judging has taken place over various beer festivals throughout 2019 and we are very proud to announce that we received 5 awards for our beer.

Tom Knox, Roger Clark and Dom Skeet were all present at the Colchester Winter Beer Festival to accept the 5 honours in The Champion Beer of East Anglia Awards.

In the Porter category, we won Gold for our London Porter, Old King Coel 5%.

In the Speciality Category, Gold went to our Brazilian Coffee and Vanilla Porter 4.6%.

In the Strong Ales and Milds Category, Bronze went to Double Brown, 4.6%.

In the Bitter Category, joint Silver went to Colchester No.1, 4.1%, our Best Bitter.
