Twice Brewed’s head brewer, Matthew Brown, said: “We’re absolutely delighted to have brought another batch of prestigious awards back to the brew house.

“Juno Black certainly seems to be catching the attention of the judges with another national gold for the awards cabinet, meanwhile we were really pleased that such a range of our beers were also given silver and bronze awards.

“We’re currently in the middle of a project to extend the brewery, which is lucky as we’re going to need some more wall room and a bigger cabinet for the awards."

As the awards are judged by mostly brewers, industry experts and beer journalists, the awards are seen as the ‘brewers’ choice awards’ by the industry.

Following the awards, SIBA chairman, Richard Naisby, congratulated the winners.

He said: “Judges had a tough job separating the pack as the standard was extremely high once again.

“The winners from the SIBA competition are officially the best independent craft beers in the UK, something brewers should be extremely proud of."
