A FAMILY-owned Herefordshire brewery has taken home a clutch of prestigious awards at major beer industry event.

Wye Valley Brewery, based in Stoke Lacy, near Bromyard, received seven awards at the recent Campaign for Real Ale Awards.

The CAMRA Awards, known for celebrating the best in beer and brewing, saw Wye Valley Brewery receive accolades across a range of categories.

The awards were presented last week in person at the brewery, attended by staff members and the three generations of the family-run business, underscoring the collaborative spirit and dedication that has propelled the brewery to the forefront of the craft beer industry.


Herefordshire CAMRA's Mark Haslam said: “It’s remarkable to see Wye Valley Brewery win so many awards in one year. It’s a testament not only to the quality of their products but says a lot about how they do business. The team at Wye Valley Brewery have invested not only in brewing kit but also in their staff and training. The results of this far-sighted approach are now clearly evident. It’s a big ‘well done’ to everyone involved.”

The brewery's managing director Vernon Amor said the whole team was "delighted" to have received so many awards in one go.

 “Everyone at Wye Valley Brewery plays their part in brewing consistently high-quality beers," he said.

"My thanks go to all my colleagues and their commitment to excellence – cheers!”
