Swansea’s newest microbrewery has won an award just a month after it launched in April of this year.
Boss Brewing’s stout, Boss Black, was announced the Gold Award Winner and the brewery was presented with the SIBA Wales and West Keg Trophy 2015.
The beer has a rich, silky and complex character and packs a chocolatey, nutty, smoky hit. Prior to winning the award, the beer had already been met with enthusiastic response by pubs around the Swansea area. It’s also been lapped up, along with the brewery’s golden ale, blonde ale and American IPA, by landlords in pubs as far afield as Newcastle and Kent
The owners of Llansamlet-based Boss Brewing, Sarah John and Roy Allkin, are delighted to have been presented with the award from SIBA (the Society of Independent Brewers).
Sarah said: “We’ve worked so hard on all of our recipes and are passionate about all of our beers, so to be recognised for creating a great stout is fantastic. We’re even more honoured that we are able to say that we received this recognition whilst still a start-up business and less than two months after the public first tasted our beers.”
Roy added: “We’ve loved getting really generous feedback on our stout from members of the public through our social media. We were really proud of what we had created beforehand, but to have won a gold award for it is even more incredible.”
