Torbay-based Bays Brewery is raising a toast to the news that it has been awarded a top accolade for one of its multiple award-winning ales after taking Gold at the Taste of the West Awards 2023.
Its popular Devon Dumpling beer was given first place by judges of the coveted West Country awards in the first phase and will now go on to complete in a third and final judging phase.
Its younger sibling Devon Rock craft lager also received praise, with Bays' modern craft beer taking Silver in this year's Taste of the West Awards 2023.
The Gold and Silver accolades follow on from a string of awards for the Paignton-based family-run brewery which celebrates 16 years of being on the beer scene in 2023.
Bays Brewery Director, Peter Salmon, said: “We are thrilled to have bagged gold for our popular Devon Dumpling ale. As one of our original ales, it’s great to know that more than a decade on it continues to be a hit with beer drinks across the South West.”
