Greene King & Belhaven scoop awards in 2020 International Beer Challenge

Suffolk-based brewer, Greene King and its sister brewery, Belhaven in Scotland have scooped five awards between them in this year’s 2020 International Beer Challenge.

The latest awards follow a long list of previous achievements and continues to underline the quality and craftmanship both breweries pride themselves on.

Ice Breaker Pale Ale, created by its own apprentice brewers, has picked up a Silver medal in the Ale category, whilst Old Speckled Hen Low Alcohol has received a Bronze medal in the No or Low Alcohol category.

Three of Belhaven’s beers also impressed, with Scottish Ale picking up a Bronze medal in the Ale award section, whilst Belhaven Black and Scottish Oat Stout also scooped Bronze medals in the Stout and Porters category.

Matt Starbuck, Greene King Brewing and Brands’ managing director, said, “Whilst we have been winning awards for our beers for several years now, it is always an honour to receive them and know that our beers continue to impress and be seen as world-class.

'It is of course great to see Ice Breaker recognised, as this was developed by our apprentice brewers, but it is also great to see our Old Speckled Hen Low Alcohol beer acknowledged as this indicates we have an excellent offering in this category as well.

“Alongside that, I am delighted that three of Belhaven’s brands have also received these prestigious International Beer Challenge awards. As Scotland’s oldest working brewery, we are proud to brew beers of extremely high-quality that are recognised by consumers, and experts alike.”
