Duration Brewing of West Acre celebrates top ten rating in RateBeer awards
Duration Brewing, of Abbey Farm in West Acre, has been named in the top ten list of best new brewers by a forum which rates beers around the world.
Every year RateBeer recognises the best new brewers, places for beer by region and country, reviewers, beers in the world, beers by style and top100 brewers across the globe.
RateBeer tabulated more than 4.2 million reviews, examining more than 640,000 beers by more than 33,000 brewers around the world.
Said Miranda Hudson, who co-founded Duration with brewer Derek Bates: “Our biggest milestone of 2019 was getting the Norfolk facility built and operational.
"As an emerging brewer the independent beer community has hugely supported Duration both here in the UK and beyond. Any hard-earned honour to attribute, we feel lies with passionate individuals and hard working companies who, like us, have built their business on small producer principles. We would not be here without their active support and guidance."
Duration Brewing launched as a modern farmhouse brewery in December to make Beers That Belong.
Duration became operational after a derelict medieval barn in the Nar Valley was transformed into a high-end brewhouse.
Head brewer Bates draws inspiration from nature and agriculture to produce "everyday, slow, agricultural and spontaneous beer".
Joe Tucker, founder of RateBeer, said: “2019 was our most competitive year to date, seeing continued growth in the number of brewers, beers and ratings added to the site. We couldn’t be prouder to recognise these breweries for this hard-earned honour.”
