Brimstage Wins International Beer Mat Set of the Year

It’s not just its beers that have been bringing in awards to the brewery. Brimstage’s beer mats have gained the accolade of International Beermat Set of the Year from the British Beermat Collectors Society (BBCS).

The brewery’s eye-catching pump clips were painted by Wirral artist Catherine Dipple and were the idea of Brimstage Brewery owner Neil Young. He said: “When I started the brewery I came up with the names of the beers and worked with Catherine to develop images that would make them stand out on the bar and reflect the traditional nature of cask ale.

“When we decided to put them on beer mats we didn’t want the pictures to get lost so made the mats larger and of higher quality than many others. It was a pleasant surprise to receive the award but we’re very grateful to the BBCS and proud of every award we get.”

The brewery received a certificate and shield from Tony Hobson (pictured left with Neil Young) at The Cocked Hat in Stockport on Tuesday 14 October 2014.
