GREAT BRITISH BEER FESTIVAL WINTER 2018 The Halls, St Andrews Plain, Norwich, NR3 1AU Wednesday 21st - Saturday 24th February 2018 CAMRA’s flagship Great British Beer Festival Winter 2018 was held in Norwich for a second year and will be held there again next year. Ripper from Green Jack Brewery won CAMRA’s prestigious Champion Winter Beer of Britain 2018 award at this year’s Great British Beer Festival Winter in Norwich. Green Jack Brewery, which is local to the festival and based in Lowestoft, Suffolk, is now one of the largest breweries in East Anglia and winner of multiple real ale awards. Its Ripper is a well-known winter favourite, having taken home the Champion Beer of Britain award in 2007 and securing silver last year. Tim Dunford from Green Jack Brewery said “It’s absolutely brilliant that we have won this award for the second time, I’m overwhelmed! We really love our strong beers and used to travel to Belgium all the time when we first got into the industry - I fell in love with the style and we have gone on from there.” This year’s Silver went to Broken Dream Breakfast Stout from Siren Craft Brewery, while Cairngorm Brewery took home the Bronze award with Black Gold. All three beers were available to sample at the Great British Beer Festival Winter, along with a huge range of light, ruby and dark ales, as well as a variety of foreign beers, ciders and perries.
