A FINCHAMPSTEAD brewery has taken its first medal in the Beer World Cup.

Siren Craft Brew, based in Finchampstead, took silver in the Wood And Barrel-Aged Sour Beer category.

More than 8,000 entries from 66 countries competed at the Beer World Cup, which was held in Nashville, Tennessee.

California's Bruery Terreux took gold, while Colorado's Dry Rock Brewing Company took bronze.

Siren Manager Andy Nowlan said: “We’re proud and humbled to have picked up our first ever World Beer Cup medal. Of the multitude of beer awards you can enter - this is the one.

"Our love of barrel ageing began on day one with Maiden and still epitomises what we’re about as a brewery today. This is amazing recognition for the dedicated team here at Siren, and especially so for our Barrel Manager, Steve Hoile.”
