Brewer strikes gold in competition

Locals in a Frampton Cotterell pub will be raising a glass of award winning beer after the owners won three awards at the South West Beer Competition.

The Rising Sun pub on Rycroft Road is the brewery tap for the The Great Western Brewing Company, based in Hambrook. 

The company, run by Kevin and Sharon Stone who live in Frampton Cotterell, won a gold and two silvers in the competition run by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA). 

The company scooped the gold award for Maiden Voyage Cask Best Bitter, silver for Bees Knees cask speciality bitter and another silver for Hambrook Pale Ale bottles.

The Rising Sun pub has been owned by the same family for over 35 years, and the brewery has been in the same ownership for over 10 years. 

Having won gold, the company will go on to the national finals which are held in Manchester next year.
