Wherry has previously won champion beer of Britain and is renowned for its fresh, zesty flavours. The amber ale is described as having big floral aromas and contains sweet malts that work well with the grapefruit hops.
The International Beer Challenge had 72 judging categories this year, with entries from 30 countries. The judging process is renowned for being rigorous.
Woodforde’s head of marketing, Judi-mae Alderton, said: “Wherry has always been our best seller. Every month, our distribution of this glorious ale takes us further and further afield, so naturally we’re very proud of this award and see it as a reflection of Wherry’s continuing glory. Well done to our brewery team for making such a great beer!”
