Hawthorn Brewing Co Named Supreme Champion Brewer
Following on from our recent Gold and Silver medal haul, we are extremely pleased to announce that Hawthorn Brewing Co has been named Supreme Champion Brewer at the 2014 International Beer Challenge (IBC) in London.
In winning the award, Hawthorn (which last month was named “Brewer of the year—Oceania”) edged out established breweries such as Boston Beer Company (Nth American champion), Fynes Ales (UK champion) and Baltika Breweries (European champion) to be crowned.
This year, for the first time, the IBC awarded trophies to the top performing brewers who entered the competition. Chairman of the judges Jeff Evans said: ”For its previous 17 years, the IBC has only focused on beers but we felt it was high time that the brewers themselves were recognised, especially those that achieve success in the competition with a number of different beers. It really shows the quality and consistency that runs through a brewery’s portfolio.”
The IBC is the largest packaged beer awards in Europe with more than 500 entries received from over 30 countries.
