Grantham brewer hits the jackpot

A top tipple has earned a Grantham brewer a golden accolade from visiting beer lovers.

Robert March, owner of Newby Wyke Brewery, was presented with a Gold Award in recognition of his Banquo ale, which was the champion beer at the Harbury Beer Festival 2012.

The Newby Wyke Banquo also won the award of the fastest selling beer of the festival after being consumed in less than an hour.

Robert is pictured receiving his award from the chairman of the Heart of Warwickshire branch of CAMRA, John Crossling.

The presentation was made during a visit to the brewery by 15 members of the Warwickshire branch and members of the Grantham CAMRA branch.

They all enjoyed the three Newby Wyke beers on offer and a barbecue.
