Five beers brewed by Westerham Brewery have won medals at the International Beer Challenge.

Audit Ale, a Strong Ale won Gold in its category.  Double Stout, the other half of our heritage range won Silver in the stouts and Porters category.  Marks & Spencer 9 Hop Kent Pale, brewed by Westerham picked up a Silver medal.  Viceroy IPA and British Bulldog won Bronze in the Pale Ales and Bitters category.

Robert Wicks, founder and head brewer said: ‘This is the first time we have entered the International Beer Challenge and we are very proud to have all our entries recognised for their excellence.  We are particularly pleased to win a Gold medal for the Audit Ale, which has in the past also won Supreme Champion cask beer two years in a row at SIBA competitions.’

More than 630 beers from 30 countries entered the competition, which was judged in London by a panel of 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 and Japan. Each was tasted blind by the expert panel and medals were awarded to the exceptional entries.

Only 48 gold medals were awarded in 62 different categories of beer.
