St Austell Brewery is celebrating after scooping an unprecedented three awards at Britain’s biggest beer festival.
It was the only Cornish brewery to win at the prestigious Great British Beer Festival held at Earl’s Court exhibition centre in London yesterday (Tuesday, August 3 2010).
Admiral’s Ale was crowned the Champion Bottled Beer of Britain in the flagship awards run by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) - regarded as the industry Oscars.
Tribute was awarded a silver medal in the Best Bitter category and Proper Job won bronze in the Golden Ales category.
James Staughton, managing director of St Austell Brewery, said: "Huge congratulations to Roger Ryman and his brewing team for the unprecedented number of awards the Brewery received.
“I can not remember when or if a Brewery has ever won three awards – including the winner of a class – in the same year. This really is a result to celebrate.”
Jeremy Mitchell, St Austell Brewery’s Marketing and Communications Manager, said: “We were up against some great beers from right across the UK so to win three awards is an achievement we’re really proud of.
“It continues a fantastic run of success for the Brewery and our ales and is a tribute to the hard work and dedication of our Head Brewer Roger Ryman and the entire brewing team.”
It’s been a record week for the family-owned Brewery, which also won big in the World Beer Awards 2010. Both Admiral’s Ale and Smugglers were recognised in the best European styles of beer category.
