|Mark Robson presents Sophie Chadwick|
We had the results of the poll for our first beer tonight at the Deal Hop Farm meeting at the Just Reproach.
We had a long list of 25 names and 93 of our members voted. No one selection got more than 10% of the vote.
We took the first three position nominations to Ripple Steam (RSB) for the final decision - this included 8 names for the shortlist:
Shingle Shore Roisin Murray
Deal Ale Michael Wyatt
Deal Green Hop Beer Liz Harding
Deal with the Devil Gill & Simon Beechey
DHF No1 Graham Bush
Goodwin Gold Philippa Butler
Real Deal Beer Cathy Tyce
Hopping M.A.D (Made Around Deal) Sophie Chadwick
The Decision of Judges at RSB was to go for Hopping M.A.D (Made Around Deal) – so Congratulations to Sophie in Sandwich who was awarded the display set of new 3 bottled beers from Ripple Steam (ours will be the fourth!)
All the runner ups on the shortlist will receive two bottles for their suggestions. The Judges gave some great feedback on the names suggested and were impressed in people’s creativity.
I will contact all the runners up in the next couple of days. Next step is the design of the bottle label which we need to complete by the end of June.
Thank you everyone who participated from the Deal Hop Farm and our colleagues at Ripple Steam
