The brewery’s 6X beer picked up another two awards from the International Beer Challenge: bronze in in the Ale category, and a further bronze for Wadworth’s newest addition of gluten free beer, 6X Gold in the Speciality Beer category.

Wadworth describes 6X as “a well-rounded beer that’s copper in colour with a fruity, malty finish. 6X Gold is a hoppy and refreshing ale with sweet malt and spicy notes on the palate and a zesty citrus aroma and gluten free.”

Chris Welham, CEO of Wadworth, said: “We are hugely proud of these accolades. 6X continues to be one of the most famous and well-loved ales from the south west of England, and we are honoured to have been recognised in these awards. 6X Gold is the newest addition to the Wadworth family, and we are thrilled with the success of the beer.”
