The team at Wold Top Brewery is celebrating after winning a coveted three gold stars in the Great Taste 2013 awards.

The Bridlington-based brewer’s blonde beer, Wold Gold, was one of only three beers nationwide to win the ultimate three-star accolade in the rigorous food awards scheme that involves more than 400 judges and thousands of hours of blind tasting.

Wold Gold was one of only 125 products out of almost 10,000 entered to be awarded three stars.

All of the three-star products were re-judged by a panel including Masterchef judge and restaurant critic Charles Champion, food buyers from Harrods, Fortnum & Mason, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols and Whole Food Markets, and Michelin star chef Russell Brown.

Kate Balchin, the microbrewery’s export and accounts manager took the call that declared Wold Top Brewery a winner, and said:

“We are so proud to win the coveted three-star rating — we’re probably the smallest of the three breweries to win three stars.

“It’s a true reflection on how well our small, close-knit team work together and a real credit to the brewing team.

“We’re looking forward to printing new neck labels for Wold Gold so that we can display our award with pride.”
