Drinkers given chance to share in Timothy Taylor’s award success

Fans of Timothy Taylor’s are being given the chance to win a selection of award-winning beers as the Keighley brewery celebrates recent medal success. Timothy Taylor’s claimed four tasting awards at the International Beer Challenge 2023 (IBC) and also received the title of World’s Best Can Design for Hopical Storm at the World Beer Awards 2023.

The promotion will run across Timothy Taylor’s social media accounts, inviting followers to name their top three Taylor’s beers of all time to establish a fans’ favourite table of gold, silver, and bronze medal places. Three entrants will be picked at random by the brewing team to win samples of the IBC medal winners – Landlord (gold), Hopical Storm (silver), Landlord Dark (silver) and Boltmaker (bronze).

Announcing the campaign, Timothy Taylor’s chief executive Tim Dewey explained “Feedback is an important part of the quality assurance process at Timothy Taylor’s and we are always keen to hear what people think about our beers. To receive four medals from the IBC is great recognition for the hard work and dedication that goes into brewing Timothy Taylor’s beers and the team, led by head brewer Andy Leman, should be proud of their achievements.

“Our beers have some of the most loyal and passionate fans you could wish for, so the IBC medals are a chance for us to say thank you and invite them to share in our success. The challenge is now on to identify the gold, silver, and bronze medal positions in our fans’ favourite competition, and we are looking forward to seeing which Timothy Taylor’s beers reach the top of our poll.”

The International Beer Challenge aims to reward and promote excellent beers from around the globe and attracts entries from over 40 countries, with a panel of experienced judges tasting beers across more than 80 different style categories. Awards are also made for design and Timothy Taylor’s received a gold medal for design and packaging for its Hopical Storm cans, making it a double celebration having been named World’s Best Can Design at the World Beer Awards 2023.

“Hopical Storm was the first Timothy Taylor’s beer to be available in a can” continued Dewey “and to win a taste medal and two of the highest accolades for its design rounds off an excellent launch year. The development of Hopical Storm has been a great example of building and investing in quality, premium brands for the future – a process that involves everyone at the brewery – and the marketing team is also to be congratulated for its work on creating the award-winning brand identity.”

The mandarin, mango, and passion fruit of Hopical Storm unleashes a tropical cyclone of refreshment that strikes thirst. It is a characterful twist on the tradition associated with Timothy Taylor’s and the can design needed to reflect this new approach for a brewery that was established in 1858. The attention to detail on the can design combines the vibrant, tropical colour and a silver lightning strike, with the depiction of the famous Timothy Taylor’s barley sheaf also updated to show it being buffeted by a strong wind to create the perfect Hopical Storm.
