St Austell Brewery is celebrating after scooping three top awards at the Falmouth Beer Festival and three more at the World Beer Awards.
Judges at the Falmouth Beer Festival, which took place on Friday 21 and Saturday 22 October, chose the Brewery’s newest ale Trelawny as the Best Bitter, and awarded Proper Job the accolades of Champion Beer of the Festival and Supreme Cornish Champion of the Festival.
A tasting day was held on the Thursday prior to the event, where a panel of experts from the Cornwall branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) chose Proper Job as the best out of all 234 beers appearing at the festival.
Gerry Wills, festival organiser said: “The tasting judges sampled 234 different beers, and suffice to say Proper Job was chosen as the best of the lot. Trelawny also beat off stiff competition from more than 20 other bitters, so it really is a great accolade for St Austell Brewery and their ales.”
At the World Beer Awards, held on Thursday 27 October, Proper Job picked up yet another trophy, being named best bottled IPA in Europe, while Admirals Ale came top in both the European and World premium pale ale category.
Roger Ryman, St Austell Brewery’s Brewing Director said: “We’re absolutely delighted at being honoured with so many awards for our beers. To be recognised at both a local and global level for the quality of our ales makes us extremely proud, and the recent accolades reaffirm what we already knew – St Austell beers really are the best!”
Proper Job is an authentic IPA brewed with Cornish spring water and malt made from a blend of malts including Cornish grown Maris Otter barley. It is a powerfully hopped golden bitter that explodes with citrus grapefruit flavours and was also named Champion Bottled Beer of Britain at this year’s Great British Beer Festival.
Trelawny is St Austell Brewery’s newest ale, and is a unique blend of traditional English Golding and specially imported Galaxy hops from Launceston, Tasmania. Locally grown barley is gently roasted to give this beer a classic burnished copper colour and a robust full body which belies its modest 3.8% ABV strength.
Originally brewed in 2005 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar, Admiral’s Ale has been named the World’s Best Beer in both 2010 and 2011.
