Love Lane Brewing scoops TWO gongs at SIBA National Independent Beer Awards 2019

Liverpool’s Love Lane beers took home a Gold and a Bronze in the SIBA National Independent Beer Awards, which took place at BeerX here in the city.


Love Lane Pale Ale and Love Lane’s Unfiltered IPA Series Double Dry Hopped IPA both won gold in their respective categories in the regional north west award.

Both then went into the national competition. Love Lane Double Dry Hopped IPA won gold in the National Keg IPA competition. Love Lane Pale Ale won bronze in the pale ale category.

Stephen Crawley, Founder and Chief Executive, says

“We are delighted for everyone at Love Lane Brewing, but especially the brewers. Commissioning a brewery and winning awards within 12 months is testament to their experience and passion for Love Lane Beers”.

“Judges had a tough job separating the pack as the standard was extremely high once again. The winners from the SIBA competition are officially the best independent craft beers in the UK, something brewers should be extremely proud of.” Ian Fozard, SIBA Chairman.

The SIBA National Independent Beer Awards judged a huge range of beers across a number of styles in separate cask, keg and bottle & can competitions. As the awards are judged mostly by brewers, industry experts and beer journalists the SIBA Independent Beer Awards are very much seen as the prestigious ‘Brewers’ choice Awards’ in the industry.

Love Lane Brewing is based in the heart of Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle, voted the “coolest” district in the UK. In 2016, it began the transformation of their Liverpool base, renovating an old rubber factory into an 18,000 Hectolitre Brewery.
