The Arran Brewery’s “Arran Dark” will be competing in the CAMRA Great Beer Festival in London in August for the UK title after winning the Scottish Champion title in the mild category. Arran Dark added this title to its long list of awards including the Wolds Best Dark Brown Beer in 2012.
Arran’s Managing Director said” I am very proud of our excellent brewery team who have consistently, over many years, kept Arran Dark at the very highest levels of excellence despite ferocious competition from some extraordinary fellow craft brewers and the big multinationals with their “crafty beer offerings”.
Arran Dark has come full circle as in 2000, on its launch, it won the “Beer of the Festival” title in a CAMRA festival in Renfrew, now sixteen year on it is still winning awards. Gerald went on to say “There are a lot of new beer drinkers out there introduced by the new wave of craft brewers, which we are proud to be classed as, these new drinkers are looking for quality over quantity and as their pallets become educated they are being drawn more and more to these fantastic ales, with great malt and less hops they offer the drinker a more balanced taste experience and less of the, at times, monotone hoppyness some new wave beers can only offer.
As the brewing industry changes the mass producers are trying hard to imitate the success of the craft brewers and the range of great tasting beers on offer is expanding rapidly and I am pleased to see Arran is holding
its own against their “crafty Beer” tactics. I hope consumers continue to
drink local, support local craft beer jobs and above all experience great, well made beers where ever they come from, in moderation of course”.
