International Beer Challenge Success

Posted by Wold Top Brewery on

We're deligted that two of our beers have been voted amongst the best in the world after they won medals at the International Beer Challenge 2018.

Our first gluten free beer, Against the Grain, impressed the judges in blind taste tests and was awarded a silver medal in the Speciality Beer Category, whilst our blonde beer, Wold Gold won a bronze medal in the Ale Category.

Our Brewery Manager, Alex Balchin said: “Gaining recognition from the International Beer Challenge for the quality of our beers is a real compliment and an amazing achievement, especially as there are so many new and exciting products coming out of the beer world.”

Against the Grain, 4.5% ABV, is made from lager malt, maize, hops and yeast and is a premium full flavoured bitter beer with a good creamy head, refreshing bitterness and citrus aftertaste. It also won a silver award in the Premium Bitters & Pale Ales 4.5% to 4.9% category at the SIBA regional keg awards 2017.

Wold Gold, 4.8%, is a mix of Wold grown Barley, Wheat and Cara malt hopped with Goldings and Styrian hops that give it a soft, fruity flavour with a hint of spice. It also won best in show at this year’s London Beer Competition.

The International Beer Challenge aims to reward and promote excellent beers from around the globe providing brewers with a platform to express their beers.

Industry leading experts on the judging panel included beer writer Jeff Evans and a range of expert judges including former brewers, beer buyers, independent beer retailers, writers and broadcasters.
