Forty-five judges appraised over 1,100 beers and ciders from all over the world, from microbrewers to multinational companies.
Chair of judges Bill Taylor said, “The list of medal winners reflects both the quality and diversity of beers and ciders entered into the competition.
“Judges put in long hours assessing and debating the merits of the products to select the winners and the final list is an impressive showcase for the very best in brewing and cider making around the world.”
Winners include Camden Town Brewery’s pils unfiltered lager, which won Gold in class 2 for lager between 4.5% and 4.9% and ‘killer sharp’ cider from Hogan’s based in Alcester, which won gold in class 7 for speciality cider.
Oliver Fozard of Roosters Brewery, which won Gold, Silver and Bronze medals, said: “This is one of very few brewing competitions we will pay to enter, because of the calibre of the judges. It’s an honour to be mentioned in the same breath as breweries we look up to.”
