Richard and Liz Lever run the Magic Dragon Brewing Brewery, which is based at the Plassey Leisure Park, Eyton, in Wrexham have won two awards at the Wales and West Regional Independent Beer Awards 2019.

Their Eyton Bitter was awarded Bronze for Bottle/Can Premium Bitters (4.5 to 6.4% abv) and the Eyton Gold won Gold in the Bottle/Can British Bitters (up to 4.4%abv) section.

Richard, who said they were delighted to receive the awards, said: “It’s really good that all our hard work has paid off and we’re over the moon to get these awards for our bottled beers.”

The awards are run by the Society of Independent Brewers prior to the opening of the popular SIBA Ludlow Beer Festival at Ludlow Castle and judge the best independent craft beers across a variety of style categories.

The pair have being running the brewery since November 2017.

The Magic Dragon Brewing produces a range of cask ales for pubs and restaurants as well as their bottled beers which they sell on site and in local shops in the area, and there has been a micro-brewery at the Plassey since 1985.
