Lostwithiel Business Group member Castle Brewery recently won Gold in the Cask British Dark Beer category for their Cornish Stuggy Stout at the South West Independent Beer Awards (SIBA) which took place in Newton Abbot. Cornish Stuggy Stout is described as roast coffee, smokey with light bitterness to finish.
As the awards are judged mostly by brewers, industry experts and beer journalists the SIBA Independent Beer Awards are very much seen as the prestigious ‘Brewers’ choice Awards’ by the industry.
Following his win Theo Corfield from Castle Brewery said: “In my 10th year at the helm of Castle Brewery, this award has to be at the pinnacle, since our first one, in 2016. The number of quality entries in the Cask British Dark Beer class, has made this award all the more pleasing. ‘Stuggy Stout’ has depth of flavour from the blend of 8 malts and roasted barley, which makes it eminently drinkable.”
Castle Brewery was started in 2007 by Andrew White (formerly of Keltek Brewery) and then, in 2012, acquired by amateur brewer and Craft Brewing Association member, Theo Corfield.
The brew house produces a range of cask and bottled beers, all suitable for vegetarians/vegans. The bottled beers are packaged on site and accredited with the CAMRA Real Ale in a Bottle logo.
