UK BREWER OF THE YEAR 2019

By Curious Brewery, September, 9 2019

We are thrilled to have been awarded ‘UK BREWER OF THE YEAR’ at the prestigious International Beer Challenge 2019 this week!

The competition was judged by a panel of 70 industry experts including brewers, journalists, retailers and flavour experts.

We’re also delighted to have been awarded Gold in the Lager Taste Category for our flagship premium lager Curious Brew at the World Beer Awards 2019 earlier this month.

“This is unbelievable and amazing for us. We are currently a small player in the UK beer market, but we’ve now been judged to be the best brewer in the entire country! We’re thrilled!

We’ve always believed our unique winemaker’s approach creates delicious, premium brews, but it’s something else to win an internationally recognised award to validate it. This is huge for us and I couldn’t be prouder of the talented team that we’ve built and who have helped bring this home.

 The next step for our talented Head Brewer Matt Anderson and our brilliant team of master brewers will be to continue to refine our range and significantly widen our distribution across pubs, restaurants and retailers so more people can taste our wonderful beer”. 

Gareth Bath, Managing Director Curious Brewing

The award wins come on the back of what has been a momentous year for us at Curious Brewing. Not only did 2019 see the opening of our state-of-the art, multi-million pound ‘cathedral of brewing’ in the heart of Ashford, Kent, but this year we also saw a complete rebranding of our core range of beer and cider, with new bottles launching this Autumn.
