Shropshire brewery settles snack debate

Shropshire brewery, Wood’s, has used the Coronavirus lockdown to settle a highly controversial debate which has raged on for years.

Just after lockdown started the brewery launched the Pub Snack Championship on Facebook, pitting 16 of the country’s favourite pub snacks against one another in a bid to find out once and for all, what the ultimate pub snack is.

Pickled eggs, bombay mix and salted peanuts were amongst the snacks that were knocked out in the early stages.

The semi finals saw pork scratchings defeat dry roasted peanuts, and crisps knock bacon fries out of the competition. The crisps versus pork scratchings final was closel, but pork scratchings came out victorious with 55% of the vote.

Stephen O’Neill from Wood’s said: “The championship certainly captured the imaginations of our pub loving county with almost 3000 votes cast over the last month."

Wood’s also selected a winner from the thousands of voters for an additional prize. Jon Gibbs will be gifted a month’s supply of beer and two tickets to Shropshire Oktoberfest.

Wood’s has recently launched a new online shop at www.woodbrewery.co.uk selling their best brews in packs of 12 bottles, and polypins with a dispensing tap in 18 and 35 pints options.
