Brewery scoops hat-trick of awards


Three of St Austell Brewery’s beers have come away with medals from a leading beer award ceremony.

Cornish Best (3.4% ABV), Mena Dhu (4.5%) and DIPA Big Job (7.2%), all won silver awards at the SIBA South West Independent Beer Awards 2024.

The awards, which were presented at MaltingsFest opposite Tucker’s Maltings site in Newton Abbot, are judged by beer sommeliers, master brewers and other expert beer judges from across the industry.

Georgina Young, brewing director, St Austell Brewery, said: “We’re thrilled that our beers have been recognised as some of the best in brewing at this year’s SIBA awards.

“Our three winners showcase the different style of beers St Austell Brewery produces and highlight the brewing team’s dedication to crafting different styles of beer – a lower ABV bitter in Cornish Best, a powerful hoppy DIPA in Big Job, and smooth and smoky Mena Dhu – one for the stout lovers.”
