The Tuckers Maltings Beer Festival in Newton Abbot celebrated its 24th year with more than 270 beers from all across the South West available to be sampled. The event is organised by the Society of Independent Brewers. (SIBA) Paul Diamond, chairman of the festival, said he was delighted with how the event went. He said: “It was a fabulous event with more than 3,800 people coming through the doors. It is great to have an event with so many people coming along and there not being any trouble.” What a Year it was for the mighty Danish Dynamite. We brought home the silver award in the Strong Bitters & Pale Ales category sponsored by AVS Wines & Beers. This perfect pint has now reached a total of 23 awards in major beer competition! No wonder its a best seller.
