A BREWERY is celebrating continued international success as one of its brands has been recognised with another prestigious award.

The Black Sheep Brewery in Masham has clinched the Championship Trophy at The International Brewing Awards for its Milk Stout .

The brewery had already won a Gold award in the International Dark Beer category, as well as a clutch of other industry awards already this year.

In March 2018, production of Milk Stout was scaled up to the retail market in bottled format as Black Sheep secured a national listing with Tesco.

Before then it had only been available as a cask beer.

Jo Theakston, sales and marketing director, said: “We are over the moon to have followed up Milk Stout’s success with this latest award win.

“The International Brewing Awards is a major event for the industry and features many top brewers, and we are proud of how far Milk Stout has come and its growing popularity among drinkers.”
