Wye Valley Brewery produces some of the county's best loved ales, and has been given a prestigious silver medal for its newly launched premium lager.

The brewery, located in Stoke Lacy, makes cask ales such as HPA and Butty Bach. Wye Valley was awarded a silver medal in this year's International Brewing Awards in the International Keg Lager category, for its lager 1985.

Seen as 'the Oscars of the brewing world', the International Brewing Awards received 1,121 entries over 41 classes, from 187 breweries around the world.

The honour was one of just 34 silver medals awarded.

Named 1985 in celebration of the year Wye Valley Brewery was founded, the Kolsch-style lager is made using Herefordshire hops as well as traditional European lager varieties.

Vernon Amor, managing director of Wye Valley Brewery, said: "We are delighted to have received this award for 1985. We have wanted to produce a premium lager for a long time and we are thrilled to have achieved international recognition so quickly. We are now even more excited to officially launch 1985 nationally this summer."

The team from the brewery received their silver medal at an awards ceremony held at Guildhall in London
