Best IPA 2017!

We’re so thrilled to announce that Transmission, has been named best IPA at Imbibe Live, triumphing from an initial field of 40 beers.

Christian went to present our case alongside the other four frontrunners who made it to the final tasting at the Imbibe Live trade show in London’s Olympia. An audience vote decided the winner, hearing each brewery’s presentation while tasting their beers.

Neil Walker, SIBA’s PR and marketing manager, said: “The quality and variety of entries this year was staggering and it is clear to see why IPA is becoming a must-brew for Britain’s independent craft breweries, proving hugely popular with beer drinkers.

“North Brewing Co’s Transmission was a modern interpretation of the style with lots of haze, fairly high alcohol and bags of aromatic hops, all of which proved popular with the audience, including myself!”

Also in the top five were Crate’s Session IPA, Roosters 24/7, Butcombe Brewery’sGorum, and Wimbledon Brewery’s Quatermaine IPA.

As the winner, Transmission secures a seasonal listing in a selection of Mitchells & Butlers’ top pubs – looks like we’re going to need the new FV’s coming in September!!
