Sharp’s and St Austell breweries have both enjoyed success at the World Beer Awards, the results of which were released in early November.
For Sharps, Special was named the World’s best bitter, and Chalky’s Bite was selected as the World’s best flavoured pale ale.
St Austell also got their fair share of awards, with Proper Job named the best bottled India pale ale in Europe, while Admirals came out top in both the European and World premium pale ale category.
Stuart Howe, head brewer at Sharp’s, spoke of his delight: “We’re honoured that two of our most popular ales have been recognised at the World Beer Awards. It is a mark of the highest recognition from the industry”.
“The series of awards given to Sharp’s this year reinforce our position as a pioneering local brewer of some of the best cask ales in the UK and, indeed, the world.”
Brewing director at St Austell Brewery, Roger Ryman, also commented: “We’re absolutely delighted at being honoured with so many awards for our beers”, he said.
“To be recognised at both a local and global level for the quality of our ales makes us extremely proud, and the recent accolades reaffirm what we already knew – St Austell beers really are the best.”
