Suffolk craft brewer St Peter’s is celebrating more awards success after claiming five medals in the Global Beer Masters.

The company, based at St Peter South Elmham, near Bungay, received two out on only eight gold medals awarded in the competition, for its Black IPA, launched earlier this year, and its Cream Stout.

St Peter’s also picked up two silver medals, for its Ruby Red Ale and Organic Ale, and a bronze, for Dark G-Free, a gluten-free beer.

The same four beers were also recongised in the International Beer Challenge last month, when Cream Stout and Black IPA won silver and Organic Ale and Dark G-Free took bronze.

And St Peter’s was also named UK country winner in the Stout, Mild and Brown Ale categories of the World Beer Awards for, respectively, Cream Stout, Crafted Classic Mild and Dirty Tackle.

Steve Magnall, chief executive at St Peter’s Brewery, said: “We’ve had a fantastic summer achieving awards for so many of our beers.

“The Global Beer Masters is blind judged on taste alone so this is a real achievement for the team and testament to the quality of our brewing processes.”

He added: “We only launched Black IPA in the spring so it’s fantastic that it scored so highly with the judges. As a small craft brewery we are always looking to innovate so it’s fantastic to know we are hitting the spot with the experts and the public.”
