Three cheers for brewery

Roger Ryman, Head Brewer at St Austell Brewery with Tribute

St Austell Brewery has won a hat-trick of awards at Britain’s biggest beer festival.

Admiral’s Ale was crowned Champion Bottled Beer of Britain in the flagship Great British Beer Festival awards at London’s Earl’s Court yesterday, run by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA).

Tribute was awarded a silver medal in the Best Bitter category and Proper Job won bronze in the Golden Ales category.

MD James Staughton said: “Huge congratulations to Roger Ryman and his brewing team for the unprecedented number of awards the Brewery received.

“I cannot 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.”
