Yorkshire, Akita Beers Voted World’s Best

Matthew Hodgson is the director of the family-run brewery.

Great Newsome Brewery’s Frothingham Best took the top spot in the under 5% category at the World Beer Awards, beating out rival brews from Japan and other nations, The Daily Mail reported on 9 October.

The East Yorkshire family brewery began operations just six years ago.

Six hundred beers from 30 countries were entered in the competition, but the bitter dark amber Frothingham Best won over the judges.

From Japan, Tazawaka Beer Rauch, a smoked brew, took gold in the Flavoured Beer category.
