Fernandes & Ossett breweries each won one award at Oktoberfest 2010. Even though they are (along with Riverhead) part of the Ossett ’empire’, they are two separate, and very different breweries. The Branch arranged a minibus to visit both breweries and present the awards.
Michael Robinson (Huddersfield CAMRA Chairman) presents Steve Hutchinson (Brewer, Fernandes) with the award for Speciality Beer of the Festival for Rum For Cover 6.5%.
Heavy Woollen CAMRA were also there to present an award from their Beer Festival, also for Rum For Cover 6.5%.
Steve took members of Huddersfield CAMRA down to look at the ‘compact & bijou’ Fernades Brewery.
We then moved on to Ossett Brewery.
Michael Robinson (Huddersfield CAMRA Chairman) presents Paul Spencer (Head Brewer, Ossett) with the award for Stout/Porter of the Festival for Treacle Stout 5%.
Paul then took members of Huddersfield CAMRA around the rather more palatial Ossett Brewery.

Thanks to Fernandes & Ossett for a very enjoyable afternoon.
