Nairn-based WooHa Brewing Company has won a sweep of Awards at the recent New York International Beer Competition.

The brewery, established in 2015, received a Bronze award for its WooHa Porter and a Silver award for its WooHa IPA, topped off with being crowned ‘Scotland Brewery of the Year’ by the judges.

Now in its fifth year the competition had over 400 entries of beers from 12 different countries. The judges were all trade buyers from retail stores, hotel chains and distributors from across the USA.

WooHa entered the beers while it was attending the New York ‘Taste and Trade Show’ in March this year and was delighted but surprised with their success as Director Heather McDonald commented:

“New York is such a hub for craft beers from around the world we didn’t expect to do as well as we did in the first year. The feedback was great and it has given us confidence that our beers will fit in well in the American market.”

Although only just a year old WooHa Brewing Company has strong ambitions to export to the USA market and has a secured an American importer, expecting to deliver its first container of beer in autumn this year.
