Brewer wins top national award
A Nottinghamshire brewery has been named the best in the country at a top awards ceremony.

Hardys and Hansons, based in Kimberley, scooped the Regional Brewer of the Year title at the annual Publican Awards.

It is the East Midland's oldest brewer, runs over 250 pubs and was last year also named Nottinghamshire company of the year.

Managers say they are delighted all the hard work that has gone in to the company is now being rewarded.

Managing Director Tim Bonham, said: "It is obviously absolutely thrilling, it's a great testament to our workforce both at the brewery and the head office and the vast number of people who work in the public houses.

"We spent a lot of time and effort rebranding the company and we are finally getting the recognition as the main brewer in the East Midlands."
