Neighbourhood IPA, from Dalston’s 40FT Brewery, has been named best beer at the London and South East SIBA Independent Beer Awards.
The beer won the IPA category before going on to take home the overall gold against all of the other style category winners.
Judging took place at Big Penny Social, in Walthamstow, ahead of their beer festival which continues today and this weekend.
Organised by the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA), the other big winners were Windsor & Eton’s Father Thames, an extra special bitter, which took the overall silver award, and Longman Brewery’s Longman Blonde, a hoppy blonde beer which won overall bronze.
“In what was an incredibly tough competition, with some superb beers across the board, I’d like to say a huge well done to all of the breweries who took home gold at this year’s awards, and particular congratulations to 40FT Brewery, who were named the ‘best of the best’ in London and the South East,” said SIBA chief executive, Andy Slee.
“I’d encourage anyone in London to make the trip to their superb taproom in Dalston and sample what is now officially the South East’s best cask IPA.”
