Raising a glass to Favourite Beers

Cheltenham-based specialist beer shop, Favourite Beers, this week received the top honour in their business when they were awarded the prestigious Independent Beer Retailer of the Year title at the Drinks Retailing Awards. The awards ceremony was hosted by trade magazine Off Licence News at the Dorchester Hotel in London on Tuesday, February 7.

Favourite Beers only started trading 16 months ago and are based on Hewlett Road in Cheltenham. They stock an amazing range of over 750 different beers and ciders both from the UK and across the world and hold regular in-shop tasting and meet the brewer evenings. They have quickly established themselves as a destination shopping venue, attracting regular customers from as far afield as Cardiff, Birmingham, Bristol, Oxford and Swindon as well as a very loyal Gloucestershire customer base.

Leigh Norwood, owner of Favourite Beers, has been passionate about beer for many years, but it was only after meeting some of the great people in the beer industry while organising the Cheltenham Beer Festival (which has raised money for Cheltenham Samaritans for the last six years), that he decided on a change of career.

Leigh said of the awards: We were totally blown away to even get nominated for this award so to win is absolutely fantastic. I think we have shown that if you invest enough passion and energy into a new business, even in the current economic climate, you can achieve real success and recognition.
