Hillside Brewery wins Countryside Alliance Rural Oscar

Hillside Brewery is celebrating its success in the south west region of the Countryside Alliance Rural Oscars, winning the Tourism Enterprise category.

Forest of Dean’s independently run Hillside Brewery has topped the Tourism Enterprise category in the south west region of the Countryside Alliance Rural Oscars 2017, and will go on to compete in the British finals.

Famous for its award-winning ales, experience days and community work, Hillside Brewery’s accolade recognises its position as a leading Gloucestershire attraction.

Now in its 12th year, the Countryside Alliance Rural Oscars celebrates rural produce, skills, enterprise and heritage, championing small businesses and their contribution to the rural economy.

Speaking of Hillside Brewery’s achievement, the judges said: ‘This father and son team is inspiring… Their enthusiasm is matched by the stunning setting, making Hillside Brewery a huge tourist draw in this beautiful corner of Gloucestershire.’

The brewery’s director, Paul Williamson added: ‘The countryside wouldn’t be the countryside without quality ale and cider. We’ve brewed some amazing beers since we started in 2014 and it’s a testimony to the team’s dedication to their craft that we’ve picked up this award against some incredible competition.’

Hillside Brewery will be one of the regional winners going on to compete in the British finals, taking place in London on Wednesday 22 March 2017, where an overall champion will be chosen.
