St Austell Brewery’s flagship lager, korev, has been named best ‘International Small Pack Lager’ in the world, at the International Brewing Awards 2021. As well as taking home a trophy, the brewery also took home three gold medals and one silver.
korev (4.8% abv), a lager brewed in the Helles style, scooped two gold medals for ‘International Small Pack Lager (4.5%-4.9%)’ and ‘International Keg Lager (4.5%-6.9%)’. It went on to be named overall champion in the ‘International Small Pack Lager’ category, in which it was shortlisted alongside three other award-winning international brews. The brewery was also awarded gold for Monterey Pale Ale, brewed by Bath Ales – which St Austell acquired in 2016 – and silver for Proper Job IPA.
Andrew Turner, MD of St Austell Brewery’s Beer & Brands, said: “We’re so proud to be representing Cornwall on the world stage. It’s very special to have been awarded a gold medal for korev. To go on and be named best in class, in the Small Pack Lager category, is a huge honour.
“The five medals we’ve been awarded are a culmination of many years of hard work and reflect the dedication and talent of our brewing teams in Cornwall and Bath.”
