OLD TOM IS THE TOP CAT AFTER WINNING SIBA AWARDS

Robinsons Brewery receives SIBA award
Robinsons Brewery receives SIBA award with Old Tom

Our favourite brewery feline, Old Tom, has continued to prove he is the ‘top cat’ with another set of awards to add to its ever growing list of accolades.

The competition, held annually by SIBA (Society of Independent Brewers), judges a selection of regional beers in a blind tasting. The regional champions are judged once again at SIBA’s BeerX event to crown the overall champion.

SIBA’s panel of expert judges, comprised of 70 leading industry experts including regional brewers, industry figures and suppliers, were wowed by the dark 8.5% ABV beer, which has been brewed since 1899; proving that this old cat can still teach the kittens a thing or two!

Fighting off fierce competition from over 325 cask and bottled beers, Old Tom emerged with an award for Gold in the Premium Strong Beers category and Bronze for the Overall Regional Champion.

Gill Yates, Brands Manager for Robinsons Brewery said: “This recognition continues what has been an incredible year for Old Tom. This award, along with others throughout the year, really cements the beer as the gold standard when it comes to strong premium ales.

Old Tom will now enter as the North West’s finalist for the SIBA National Awards at next year’s BeerX event.

Want to get your paws on a bottle? Old Tom is available throughout the UK at selected ASDA, Morrisons, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Waitrose, Booths, Bookers, Parfetts and Spar stores.
