Shepherd’s Watch, a limited edition winter beer, also picked up silver in the overall Bottled Champion category at the Society of Independent Breweries (SIBA) North Region Beer Competition in Manchester.

Wold Top owner Tom Mellor said: “It’s a great accolade to have a professional seal of approval on these beers. The competition was tough, as the Northern SIBA region is the biggest in the country, with 122 beers being considered by 138 judges.”
