International Award Success for St Peter’s Brewery

 Suffolk-based craft brewery, St Peter’s, has scooped four coveted prizes in this year’s International Beer Challenge.

The International awards, highly respected in the beer industry, aim to reward the highest-quality beers from around the globe and provide winning brewers a platform to promote their beers to the trade and consumers.

With a shrewd expert panel of the best beer judges from across the globe including retailers, importers, publicans, brewers and flavour analysts, winning an IPC is an internationally recognised symbol of quality, frequently displayed on beer labels and as a result can raise a brands profile, prestige and sales.

In this year’s worldwide competition with 72 different categories and entries from 40 countries, St Peter’s Brewery won a Bronze award for its Cream Stout, two Silver awards for its Plum Porter and Without® Raspberry & Elderberry, plus the sought-after Gold award for its Crafted Black IPA.

“We are absolutely delighted to have won a four awards in this year’s International Beer Challenge. The Gold award for our Crafted Black IPA is a huge pat on the back for the whole team and a great endorsement of the ongoing focus we have on improving current brews and innovating with new ones such as the Without® Elderberry and Raspberry,” says John Hadingham, MD at St Peter’s Brewery. “Competition was high with entries from some of the best brewers in the world, so we feel very honoured and proud to receive such high recognition for our beers and ales.”

St Peter’s Brewery, based near Bungay in Suffolk, has been making its award-winning ales since 1996 using locally malted barley, together with Kentish hops, to produce a range of classical English cask-conditioned ales as well as an extensive range of bottled beers. For more information visit
