We are on top of the world after two of our beers won at the 2015 World Beer Awards to cap an incredible year for the U.K’s Sustainable Manufacturer of the Year.
Pure UBU and Lawless Lager have both received global recognition after winning the national, continental and now worldwide stages in the highly prestigious awards ceremony.
Pure UBU, has been named World’s Best Amber Ale whilst our latest brew Lawless Lager took the much-coveted World’s Best German-Style Lager. Lawless Lager is Flo Vialan’s (our Director of Brewing) take on the 500 year old German Purity Law ‘The Reinheitsgebot’, whereby the beer is brewed with only four natural ingredients but given a twist when it is hopped with El Dorado to give it a distinctive and full flavour. As we say, ‘Lawless respects the rules as long as they are the rules according to Flo’s Law’.
The World Beer Awards are the global awards, which select the very best of each internationally recognised beer styles. The annual tasting selects, awards and promotes the ‘World’s Best Beers’ to consumers and the trade throughout the world.
Judging is blind with regional style heats held in Asia, Europe and the Americas. All regions have their own Chairman and group of judges who select the style winners in their region.
Style winners from all regions are then tasted against each other to select the World’s Best Style. From these world winners judges select the World’s Best categories, from which the World’s Best Beer is selected. World Beer Awards judges include hugely respected industry writers, leaders and critics. This year’s judges were Adrian Tierney-Jones, Mark Dorber, Will Hawkes, Jessica Mason, Jeff Evans, Tim Hampson, Glenn Payne, Chris Hall, Mitchel Adams and Claire Dodd.
Our MD Paul Halsey said: “The national and continental awards the two beers picked up were wonderful accolades in themselves, but to see both named World’s Best with the backing of such a discerning group of judges is an absolute honour and something we are very proud of. We started brewing Pure UBU ten years ago now and to see it continuing to win awards is fantastic. The award for our newest brew ‘Lawless Lager’ is the icing on the cake and for those that haven’t tried it yet, we would urge you to do so. This idiosyncratic beer is a real gem and I think may well become the jewel in Purity’s crown.”
“Everything we do at Purity is driven by our core value of ‘Pure Quality’ and to receive global recognition is real testament to our brew team and to the loyalty of our customers who have helped us grow and remain our most prized advocates.”
