Marston’s scoops four awards at brewing Oscars

Marston’s has been award four prestigious awards at The International Brewing Awards 2015 held in Burton Upon Trent at the weekend. 18th February 2015

Awarded three gold medals for Hobgoblin Ruby, Rye Pale Ale and Mann’s Brown Ale with a silver medal for New World Pale Ale, the awards were given by fellow professional brewers as outstanding commercial examples of their style.

Dubbed the brewing industry’s ‘Oscars’, The International Brewing Awards were first run 129 years ago in 1886 and have been constantly developed to reflect the global market for beer. All judges were practising brewers and the stewards were all from within the industry, ensuring integrity of pour and dispense to the judges.

Hobgoblin Ruby in keg, brewed in Witney, picked up its gold medal in the 4.5 – 6.9% abv keg beer category; Rye Pale Ale brewed in Wolverhampton from the Revisionist range won gold in the 2.9 – 4.4% abv keg beer category and Mann’s Brown Ale brewed in Burton Upon Trent won gold in the low alcohol 1.2 - 2.8% abv beer category.

New World Pale Ale

Collecting silver in the biggest and most hotly contested class (cask ale from 2.9 – 3.8% abv), New World Pale Ale is also brewed in Burton Upon Trent and was launched a year ago as a 3.8% abv golden ale in the Marston’s Pedigree ‘family’.

Richard Westwood, Managing Director of Marston’s Beer Company said: “I am thrilled that our beers have performed so well at these very prestigious brewing awards. It reaffirms our brewing expertise across our business and demonstrates that we are able to brew beers that are not only commercially successful but eminently drinkable too. It’s great to see our new beers performing alongside our other, more established brands.”
