There was a UK best in category award for the brewery’s collaboration with Rick Stein, Chalky’s Bite. The team’s innovative new brew and the first scale 0.0% amber ale in the UK market, Doom Bar Zero, was awarded silver.
Other significant accolades included a bronze medal for Wolf Rock, and a bronze medal for Offshore Pilsner.
Head brewer, Aaron McClure, said: “These awards really are the Champions League of brewing, and I’m delighted to announce that, yet again, we have been awarded some of the top medals, including best in the world for Sea Fury.
“Most breweries only dream of winning this award, and in our recent history we have won the ‘world’s best’ accolade three times (also in 2019 for Camel Valley Pilsner and in 2013 for Offshore, then called Cornish Pilsner).
“We were up against some very special beers from across the globe, which makes us even more proud of these results. We were also delighted that our brand new brew, Doom Bar Zero, achieved silver. This 0.0% beer has been two years in the making, and for it to achieve this recognition in its first year is wonderful, and testament to the hard work of our brewing team.”
Aaron added: “These awards are an enormous achievement for Sharp’s, showing how well we are performing and that our brewing practices and procedures are world class. It really is thanks to the care and attention given by each and every member of the team and, while it is unfortunate that there won’t be an actual award ceremony to attend this year, we are over the moon.”
