Bedford’s newest brewery Brewpoint scores triple win

Brewpoint celebrates three wins at the International Beer Challenge 2021

A year after brewing began at Wells & Co’s state-of-the-art home, the pub company has scored three wins at the globally recognised, International Beer Challenge (IBC) awards, taking home one gold and two silver medals from the rigorous judging process.

The aim for the IBC awards is to reward and promote excellent beers from around the globe providing brewers with a platform to express their beers to trade and consumers. With the ever-growing interest in the beer sector, there are over 80 different award categories to enter reflecting the diversity in brewing today as well as paying homage to traditional beers.

Brewpoint’s classic golden pilsner lager Midpoint was awarded a Gold Medal within the ‘Lager’ category, with the Ink Well stout and Checkpoint session IPA both receiving silver medals within its respective ‘Stout/Porters’ and ‘Ale’ categories, making it a trio of wins for the brewery.

Tom Foddy, Head of Sales and Marketing said: “We’re extremely proud of how far Brewpoint has come in its first year, these accolades speak for the hard work that has gone into making it a success after launching in the middle of the pandemic. Winning an IBC award carries a number of significant benefits, not only does it acknowledge the skill of our brewers but is an internationally recognised symbol of quality for our products, meaning our customers can be even more certain Brewpoint is delivering great tasting beers. Winning a gold medal for Midpoint is an outstanding achievement and underlines our commitment to quality and innovation, to see the taste of our beers receive this level of recognition at the International Beer Challenge awards is fantastic.”

All of the winning beers as well as the rest of the Brewpoint range can be found at available for delivery across the UK.
