Winning Ways

Prescott Ales wins another major national award for its showcase pale ale, Hill Climb

Nearly 10 years to the day since Hill Climb was first brewed, we continue to collect prestigious awards for our wonderfully easy-drinking pale ale. Since 2010, Hill Climb has become a firm regional favourite for local drinkers, now winning 8 awards from both CAMRA and SIBA.

SIBA beer award

Our journey started 12 months ago when Hill Climb won Gold at the SIBA regionals held at the historic Ludlow castle in Shropshire. Here Hill Climb, our 3.8% Pale Ale, beat stiff competition in the extremely popular category of British Cask Bitters up to 4.4%.

On March 15th 2019, Hill Climb went to compete on the National Stage at BeerX, held in Liverpool, again for British Cask Bitters up to 4.4%. Out of many hundreds of beers originally entered into this competition and with 11 regions from across the country competing, Hill Climb was placed a very credible Bronze on the night.

Prescott Ales’ entire team were delighted with this result, and brewers Chris Allen and Mike Gamble were also pleased that Hill Climb continues to attract attention from far and wide. Prescott owners Nathan and Jo McWattie also went on to say that “we are delighted that our beers have really stood the test of time in this increasingly competitive marketplace”.
