St Austell Brewery came away with four medals from this year’s World Beer Awards, including a gold for Big Job double IPA.
The news comes in close succession to award wins at both the British Bottlers’ Institute Awards (BII Awards) and Europe’s Alpha King Challenge.
The internationally recognised World Beer Awards were held in London last week. Big Job was named Country Winner and Gold Winner in the Imperial/Double IPA category. Proper Job IPA and Mena Dhu stout both won silver medals, while korev lager earned a bronze.
Big Job double IPA also came third in the Alpha King Challenge on August 15. The competition, run by 3 Floyds Brewing, saw over 80 breweries from across Europe enter to be ranked among the world’s greatest hoppy beers.
The British Bottlers’ Institute revealed the winners of its annual BBI Awards in July, with St Austell earning silvers for its flagship Tribute pale ale and Big Job double IPA, while korev lager was awarded a diploma.
Brewing director Georgina Young said: “We are proud to be representing Cornwall on the world stage again this year. Earning national and international recognition from industry experts is the result of many years of hard work from our brewers and beer quality experts.
“Although I recognise that these beers were created before I joined the brewery in 2019, my team and I continue to push the boundary on continuous improvement and raise the bar on quality across all our beers – from grain to glass.
“The fact that we’ve won eight awards in the past month reflects the dedication and talent of our teams in Cornwall and Bath. I’m very proud of them and the journey that we’re on together.”
