Abbey Ales, the renowned Bath-based brewery, has come out on top at this year’s Taste of the West awards, securing five golds and a silver.
The awards recognise the brewery’s bottled range, which is highly sought after at the Abbey Shop in Northumberland Place and in local restaurants.
Established in 1997, Abbey Ales has proven popular in the Bath brewing scene for over two decades, and this year’s success follows their recent win of the prestigious Bath CAMRA Pub of the Year 2022 award.
The CAMRA award was presented to the Star Inn on the Paragon, the brewery’s flagship pub and brewery tap.
In addition to the Star Inn, Abbey Ales also runs two other pubs in the city, the Assembly Inn in Alfred Street, and the Coeur De Lion, which is the smallest pub in Bath.
Abbey Ales Sales Director Simon Morgan said: “We are introducing two new lines, a dark stout called Bath Stout, which will be available in bottle, and a Coronation Ale, which will be available both in bottle and in cask.”
Morgan added that both the stout and Coronation Ale bottles will be available online, as well as at the brewery’s bottle shop, which is located next to the Coeur de Lion in Northumberland Place.
