Star Brewery Award
Star Brewery has achieved a win for their "Astral"

Astral was recently voted the "Best Light Beer" of the Harwich & Dovercourt Winter Beer Festival.

The Tendring branch of CAMRA are proposing a brewery visit in order to present the award officially. I have informed them that a local branch Welcoming Party would like to join up with them for the visit. I will post the date as soon as it is agreed. Congratulations to Star Brewing.
