Duration Shortlisted for New Brewery and New Beer of the Year | Brewer’s Choice Awards

10th November 2021

Duration has been shortlisted for 2 awards including the prestigious Best New Brewery of the Year and Best New Beer at the Brewer’s Choice Awards!

The award ceremony takes place at the prestigious Brewer’s Congress in London on 7th Dec and we are delighted to have made the shortlist. Our Head Brewer ‘Bates’ will be making a speech at the awards titled Leave a Legacy, or Leave No Trace and we wish the best of luck to fellow shortlisted New Brewery our dear friends Double Barrelled.

Derek Bates says:

We are delighted to have made the shortlist. Opening in the middle of rural Norfolk at a historic site was always going to be a tall order. Making it through a global pandemic while the country your brewery is in leaves the European Union has just added to the challenges, so I’ll take a medal for that alone!

In all seriousness though, we are really pleased to be shortlisted for both New Brewery of the Year and New Beer of the Year. I’m pretty proud of all the team have acheived and Turtles All The Way Down is a beer drink the little wins to in my view!

We knew building a destination farmhouse brewery meant being on a working farm, when we decided to renovate a dilapidated 16th-century barn repurposed from a 10th-century priory ruin we knew we had our work cut out. With protected wildlife and the historic and cultural significance of our site, winning an award like this really does make all the months of hard work worth it!’
