World best gong for St Austell Brewery


St Austell Brewery’s Admiral’s Ale has won the ultimate accolade after being voted the best packaged beer in the world. Admiral’s Ale scooped the top award at the International Beer Challenge – held in association with Off Licence News – coming in at number one in their list of the ‘World’s 50 Best Beers’.

The event is the largest packaged beer competition in the world and saw UK brewing industry heavyweights including Fullers, Greene King and Shepherd Neame battling it out for the top spot. Admiral’s Ale won its class and then went on to be named the overall Supreme Champion at the awards ceremony held in London.

Roger Ryman, St Austell Brewery Director of Brewing, said it was a fantastic result, adding: “It is a big thrill to have won such a top award and a great credit to the team for the way in which we are consistently producing top quality ales which are setting new standards in the brewing industry.”
