After 11 years in the business, as one of the new wave of microbreweries in Walthamstow, the Wild Card team have been awarded Brewery of the Year at the Society of Independent Brewers Association’s Business Awards 2023
Wild Card’s director, William Harris, said, “I’m delighted to win the award – it’s just huge recognition for everyone at the company and we’re just really proud of what we have achieved as a team“. Head brewer Jaega added “We have been going for eleven years now and to get recognition on a national level is unbelievable for the team – we’re going to go out tonight and celebrate! At Wild Card we operate a skinny team that works hard, so for us this is the ultimate validation. Sometimes things have got tough over the last couple of years and so an award like this really does mean everything.”
Other than the overall prize, Wild Card also won Best Online Webshop, given to the team for web design, usability, amazing customer service and product range. As well as Best Design Concept for the Astrology series, a year-long (and ongoing) project, in which beer is released each month corresponding to an individual star sign. The designs were prized for working so well as a cohesive, collectible series, as well as individual pieces.
