Long Man Brewery, Sussex Local Brewer wins top award
Long Man Brewery’s Long Blonde 3.8% Golden Ale won a coveted Silver Medal in the International Beer Challenge, which is one of the beer industry’s most prestigious competitions.
More than 630 beers from 30 countries entered the competition, which was judged by UK beer experts including retailers, importers, publicans, brewers, writers and flavour analysts, as well as highly experienced judges from continental Europe to give a comprehensive spread of tasting experience.
Brews were entered from such far-flung places as Cambodia, Brazil, South Africa, USA and Japan. Each was tasted blind by the expert panel and medals were awarded to the exceptional entries.
Long Blonde gaining this award up against over 600 beers from around the world acknowledges the distinctive taste and is an internationally recognised symbol of quality.
Long Man Head Brewer Jamie Simm said; “This is a momentous achievement for Long Man brewery, to win an international award of this stature is great recognition of the care and attention that goes into every brew and a huge motivation to continue to develop a range of beers to cater for enthusiasts far and wide.”
Long Blonde is a light coloured golden ale with a distinctive hoppy aroma and crisp clean bitterness on the finish. Smooth light and refreshing.
