Scottish brewery, Black Wolf, has scooped a trio of awards at this year’s World Beer Awards (WBA) with beers from its recently launched craft range.
The brewery secured two highly acclaimed European Gold awards including a win in the Stout and Porter category with its Florida Black beer and another in the Flavoured Beer category with its Tundra wheat beer, which is infused with flavours of elderflower.
The Stirling-based brewery was also awarded European Silver for its Big Red, an amber ale, in the Pale Beer category.
Designed to recognise the very best international beer styles, Black Wolf is no stranger to these awards having previously won World Gold for its Valente's Double Espresso beer in 2012.
The WBA is the world’s most prestigious international bottled beer competition, with tasting taking place in Europe, Asia and America. The tasting panels comprise of internationally recognised beer experts with all tasting and judging done blind.
Andrew Richardson, director at VC2 Brands, the company behind Black Wolf, said: "We are very proud of these awards which help reinforce the craft, integrity and quality which go into making our beers. The awards are not only good news for the brewery and our staff, but they also convey that we have been successful in our objective of launching a range of outstanding beers. The awards are a great celebration of the industry and it is fantastic to be part of them."
Carlo Valente, Sales Director at VC2, added: "This is a fantastic endorsement for the brewery and is a tribute to the hard work and skill of our brewers. The new craft range is also proving a success in cask and we are rolling out Coulls craft lager in keg in bars and clubs across Scotland. With these awards our customers and consumers can be assured that they are enjoying the best of craft beer."
Black Wolf relaunched earlier this year with a new Craft range of beers comprising Tundra - an elderflower infused wheat beer, Florida Black - a delicious stout, Big Red - a flavoursome red beer, Gold Digger – a crisp, fruity blonde beer, Rok IPA - a double hopped India Pale Ale and Coulls crisp and refreshing premium craft lager.
