Five medals for Fyne Ales in the International Beer Challenge 2017

By Iain Smith

Fyne Ales beers picked up a handful of silver and bronze medals at this year’s International Beer Challenge, all in the competition’s tasting categories. With the IBC attracting entries from hundreds of breweries around the world, having five beers recognised at this year’s awards is something we’re super-excited about.

In addition to bronze awards for Jarl, Hurricane Jack, Mills & Hills and Fynebank, we were genuinely delighted that Farmhouse Project brew The Witch took home a silver medal. The unconventional beer, a gruit saison brewed using foraged herbs from the glen around the brewery, was a late addition to our entries this year and for it to pick up such a high-profile award is a credit to our talented brewers.

Jamie Delap, Fyne Ales Managing Director, said of The Witch’s (slightly unexpected) victory: “it’s amazing to see The Witch, which was brewed without hops,  being recognised alongside so many modern, hop-forward beers”.
