The team at Cupitt's Estate is pleased to announce that at Australia's Independent Beer Awards (The Indies), they won three medals.
They won the gold trophy for their Milton Pilsner, silver for Hazy Pale Ale and bronze for 2021 Imperial Stout.
Head Brewer Liam Jackson said we pride ourselves on producing consistently excellent beer.
He added it was a real honour to receive the awards.
"We think reflective of our dedication to craft," he said
'We've been under the pump in our brewery to keep the beer flowing coming into summer, so it came as a fantastic surprise to see our beers do so well.
"The quality overall of craft beer in Australia has continued to improve, year on year, and continues to do so, which makes these medals feel all the more rewarding, that we are keeping up with the best of them.
"I am also proud of the variety of beers that we received medals for. We are not a "one-trick brewery" - whatever beer we make, we strive for excellence, which really is what we aim for across the board at Cupitt's Estate."
The Gold medal for Milton Pilsner in the lager category is an exciting win for the Brewery.
'We have been committed to producing beers that reflect the region that we are in," Liam said.
"We are proud to have developed a style of Pilsner that is refreshing and crisp reflective of the lagers found in Germany.."
he accolade for the Milton Pilsner follows its placement last weekend in The Australian 'Peter Lalor's Top 20 Beers.
The medals came from a record number of entries, totaling 1389 beers from 180 breweries. It was the largest ever Indies Awards.
IBA Chair Richard Adamson thought it was amazing that they got a record number of entries given the challenging circumstances faced by most breweries this year, especially considering the many lockdowns and limitations with production."
"There were a number of setbacks related to the Pandemic and border closures so it's a feat that the IBA judging and awards took place," the IBA Chair said.
"It's the second year the awards have been live-streamed from all corners of the country, due to COVID-19 uncertainty."
This year it broadcast from 10 official live cross parties around Australia, and other celebrations in taprooms and bars throughout the country.
