Five international award successes for Sussex Based Long Man Brewery as Old Man is declared ‘World’s Best Dark Mild Beer 2017’ at the World Beer Awards.

Long Man Brewery are thrilled to announce that we have been recognised a total of five times across the world’s two leading beer competitions.

Over 1900 beers from more than 36 countries were entered into this year’s World Beer Awards, judges blind tasted and scored the entries through two rounds of judging. The ever-popular beer Old Man was voted best dark mild beer in the world by judges and will now progress to the final round of tastings in late September to challenge for the honour of ‘World’s Best Beer’ across all styles and countries. This original dark beer has soft malt notes of coffee and chocolate that combine with a pleasant light hoppiness to create a rich, full tasting Old Ale of times gone by.

Head brewer Jamie Simm said; “We are absolutely delighted and flattered at this monumental award, everyone in the Long Man team couldn’t be prouder. We work hard to create great examples of traditional styles of cask ales and Old Man is the epitome of that”
