Lost and Grounded Brewers wins two awards at the Brewers Choice Awards 2022!

The brewery comes away with two first prizes: ‘Beer of the Year’ and ‘Brewery of the Year’ from the annual London event, hosted by The Brewers Journal.

December 12th, 2022 – Lost and Grounded Brewers are thrilled to announce that they have won two prizes at this year’s Brewers Choice Awards, held in London at the Business Design Centre on Thursday 8th December. Hosted by The Brewers Journal, the ceremony and Christmas party ended the first day of exhibitions and talks of the annual Brewers Congress. The awards recognise and celebrate the hard work of breweries throughout the year, across a range of categories which are sponsored by manufacturers and suppliers supporting the congress.

Lost and Grounded Brewers were notified in September that they had been short listed for three categories in this year’s Awards. Submissions were deliberated by a panel of judges who each had knowledge and experience from across all areas of the beer industry, before the winners were announced at the glittering London event. Lost and Grounded came away winning two awards, one for ‘Beer of the Year’ with their Helles, unfiltered lager beer (4.4%) as well as being crowned ‘Brewery of the Year 2022’.

Helles was first introduced into Lost and Grounded’s core range in 2021 to stand alongside their flagship, Keller Pils Hop Bitter Lager Beer. “We brewed Helles to be enjoyed with friends and to remind us of the good things in life,” comments Annie Clements [Co-Founder

and Creative Lead]. “It’s great to see a lager win ‘Beer of the Year 2022’. We’re so proud of  the crisp, clean profile of our Helles and thrilled that the judges agree!” adds Alex Troncoso [Co-Founder].

Since first establishing in 2016, Lost and Grounded set their four core values: Humble, Inclusive, Clever and Raw, which defines and supports the culture of the company. The phrasing of the name, Lost and Grounded ‘Brewers’ is subtle but also very important to the ethos of this independent business. “It’s the people that make Lost and Grounded Brewers, otherwise we’re just a shed filled with stainless steel!” says Alex. When asked about the award for Brewery of the Year, Annie blushes, “We are incredibly proud of our team. We’re so pleased to share these awards with them and we look forward to raising a glass to celebrate with them all!”
