As the awards are judged mostly by brewers, industry experts and beer journalists the SIBA Independent Beer Awards are very much seen as the prestigious ‘Brewers’ choice Awards’ by the industry.

Dave Gowler, of Bowlers, said: “Having only been brewing for just over two years, we were delighted, very proud and humbled by the Gold award we have received from SIBA East.

Bowlers started brewing in October 2020 after a decision by two friends, John Bowyer and Dave Gowler to do something a bit different following long careers in banking and IT respectively.

Mr Gowler said: “We are known for supplying quality craft ales to local pubs and also to bottle shops across the UK.

"We also supply the general public via our online web shop.”
