Brú Brewery, from Trim Co Meath, has won an impressive Four Gold Medals and a Country Winner award at the 2016 World Beer Awards including two Gold Medals for its Lager. It has also won gold medals for its Irish Red Ale, Irish Stout and a Country Winner award for its Irish Craft IPA.
Brú Lager, building on last year’s gold medal success, has won two gold medals in this year’s awards.
“We wanted to brew a great tasting lager that everyone could enjoy, including my Mum who is a coeliac” said Dave O’Hare from Brú. ‘’So winning two Gold Medals is testament to the Brú team ethos of doing whatever it takes to perfect our gluten-free lager; and my Mums bravery during those early test batches!’’
The World Beer Awards are the most prestigious competition for beer globally and recognises the world’s best beers.
Daire Harlin, brewer commented: “These awards really top off what has been an incredible year for us at Brú Brewery. Over the course of the last 12 months we have commissioned our new brewery, opened our first Brú House pub and expanded the Brú team. And looking ahead we have even more exciting plans for the next 12 months.
“We are absolutely honoured to have won these awards across our core range of Lager, Stout, IPA and Red Ale. We believe this recognises the obsession that our Brú team has towards brewing the finest hand crafted beers made from local ingredients”.
Brú Brewery’s full range is available to the UK market and is currently being distributed to trade by Liberty Wines, Vinumterra and Ooberstock. It is also distributed by Castle Rock Brewery in Nottingham and Flying Monk Brewery in Wiltshire.
