HORSHAM brewers Hepworth and Company struck Gold with their rich, dark Conqueror Stout when The Society of Independent Brewers judged it a conqueror in its own right, and awarded it the top prize.

Andy Hepworth said: “This is fantastic news! We’re well known for our range of cask beers and bottles, but when we first brewed this stout for a keg draught delivery, people thought we were a bit crazy.

“Lots of people didn’t know that England was the homeland of stout, but in fact we are following a very fine British tradition.”

He adds with a smile: “but of course with our own recipe:- those lads in Dublin don’t know everything!”

Andy celebrated the brewery’s success in Pirie’s Bar, in Horsham, where a warm welcome is always to be had.

Ross Andrews, Bar Manager at Piries said of his bar: ”We’ve always been proud to offer something different to our customers and Conqueror is a very welcome addition to our bar.”
