St Austell Brewery Scoops Three Industry Awards

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

Cornish Best (3.4% ABV) a full-bodied, bitter with toffee and biscuit notes, Mena Dhu (4.5%) a stout brewed with six different malts to bring complexity, and punchy DIPA Big Job (7.2%), all won silver awards at the SIBA South West Independent Beer Awards 2024. These new accolades put St Austell Brewery at its 51st win at this event since 2005.

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.”

The SIBA Independent Beer Awards represent the very best beer from the UK’s independent brewers and are judged by fellow brewers and industry experts, making these awards the “Brewers’ Choice” awards in the UK.
