Longhorn IPA, named after the herd of cattle that feed on the brewer’s spent grain, won the gold medal for keg ale 3.9% to 6% ABV, while the cycling-inspired Saddle Black IPA won a bronze medal in the small pack dark beer category, 5.8% to 6.9% ABV.
Further to the International Brewing Awards success, four of Purity’s beers received further recognition at SIBA’s Independent Beer Awards. Lawless keg, Session IPA keg, Mad Goose cask and Farmhouse keg all collected regional gold awards, with Farmhouse Ale going on to collect national bronze in the sours/spontaneous category.
‘Delighted and extremely proud’
Purity’s founder and chief executive, Paul Halsey, said: “What a way to kick-start our 2019! We’re absolutely delighted and extremely proud of this achievement to be recognised on an international stage.
“These are exciting times at the brewery and these highly sought-after awards really show that our core values of pure quality, pure eco and pure community are shining through. Huge thanks to our Puritans for their
continual support of our business and, of course, our beer!
“This is a real testament to the dedication, skill and focus on pure quality Flo, our director of brewing, and the rest of the brew team put into every pint of Purity.”
