A popular Isle of Wight brewery is celebrating another triumph, securing a Silver Award at the prestigious SIBA Independent Beer Awards.

Following Wight Knuckle Brewery's recent regional Gold Award, its Pale Ale impressed judges at the national level.

The SIBA Independent Beer Awards, known as a pinnacle of recognition within the brewing industry, highlight the finest offerings from independent breweries across the nation.

Founded by father and sons team George, Fergus and Edward Bristow during lockdown in 2021, Wight Knuckle Brewery has rapidly gained recognition despite their initial lack of commercial brewing experience.

George said: “This is truly overwhelming. To set up an ambitious new project like Wight Knuckle Brewery, bringing craft beer to the Isle of Wight, and to take home a national award like this is a true testament to the hard work of the entire team. 

“For us to win a regional award was more than we could have imagined, and to follow that up with recognition at a national level is truly an incredible experience. 

“This really puts Isle of Wight produce and Island brewing on the map!”

The brewery's latest accolade comes off the back of significant investment in a new brewing site at Nunwell Farm in Brading, which has expanded capacity four times from its original location at The Pilot Boat Inn.
