Bier Huis the award winning specialist drinks retailer based in Ossett town centre. Were proud to attend The Drinks Retailing Awards 2020 on Tuesday 4th Feb 2020 held at The Dorchester Hotel in London's Mayfair.
Bier Huis was nominated for the Independent Cider Retailer of the Year award.
Owner David Jones stated that being based in Yorkshire we are up against it as we are not in the cider heartlands of the South West. But we work hard to promote cider providing a showcase for small batch cider producers of Yorkshire as well as the best from around the UK and the world.
Although Bier Huis won the prize in 2017 they missed out this time with Pilango Cider from London who also make their own cider, winning the prize for the second year running.
To be a finalist is an honour in it's self at the trades biggest night of the year the judging process is one that is most rigorous where we are questioned about everything of the business
David Jones may have originally named his shop with beer
in mind, but it’s carved a substantial reputation for cider
too during the time it’s been trading in the centre of Ossett
in West Yorkshire. This is not cider’s natural territory but
Bier Huis has championed it continuously, in particular
providing a showcase for producers from Yorkshire. It’s
also amassed a range from all corners of the UK, with
county flags on shelf edges to highlight their origins.
Country flags big-up international ciders, which form a
substantial part of the Bier Huis cider range. Sales benefit
from a busy events programme, including cider and cheese
tastings that have become the stuff of local legend.
