Medals galore!

61 Deep, No. 1 Horninglow and Hobgoblin IPA are celebrating success at this year’s International Beer Challenge.

We’re always working hard to make sure we’re the ‘best for beer’, so it’s a proud moment when our beers are recognised by the industry for their taste and quality – and this is no exception!

In the ‘British-style Pale Ales and Bitters’ category 61 Deep clinched a silver medal and limited-edition brew No.1 Horninglow a bronze. Hobgoblin IPA is also a bronze medal winner in the ‘British Style IPA’ category.

61 Deep – named after the depth of the well at Marston’s Brewery – uses five American and Australian hops to give it a fresh, zesty aroma. Dive in and you’ll enjoy tropical fruits and citrus flavours.

The first of a series of beers available exclusively at Waitrose, premium IPA No. 1 Horninglow was brewed using the famous Burton Union system. Named after the original brewing location, it’s a bottle-conditioned beer, brimming with hops to lock in the flavour.

Hobgoblin IPA launched in 2017 and quickly became a firm favourite of beer lovers – it was even awarded ‘World Best IPA’ in 2018! Its combination of old and new world hop flavours and malty base make it a great session beer.

The International Beer Challenge promotes top-quality beers from across the globe. There are 72 different categories and entries come in from more than 30 different countries.

The judges – made up of industry experts– rigorously blind taste-test every beer before awarding bronze, silver and gold in each category. Beers are scored for aroma, appearance, taste and finish.
