Devizes-based brewer Wadworth is celebrating after its popular Corvus Stout was awarded a Gold Tasting Medal in the 2014 International Beer Challenge.
Rewarding quality and celebrating excellence, the annual International Beer Challenge receives entries from more than 30 countries worldwide, boasting some of the shrewdest beer judges in the land – including retailers, publicans, brewers, writers and flavour analysts.
“This is fantastic news for Corvus and reflects the hugely positive response we have had from both consumers and publicans since we launched Corvus back in 2012,” said Wadworth Product Marketing Manager Ellie Alderton. “In an independent blind taste test* seven out of ten drinkers preferred Corvus to Guinness, highlighting how great the product really is.”
Almost black and served chilled with a thick creamy head; Corvus (4.1% ABV) takes its name from the Latin for ‘Raven’. Distinctly smooth with a subtle aroma of roasted malt and coffee, followed by a bitter sweet finish, it offers excellent drinkability.

Already available in over 300 pubs across the South and South West, Corvus is available is 30litre kegs to the trade via all good wholesalers and Wadworth.

Wadworth’s Beer Kitchen Orange Peel Bitter was also awarded a Bronze International Beer Challenge Medal for Design & Packaging in recognition the classically elegant 330ml bottles, designed specifically for the fine dining table.
