Stewart Brewing has scooped two silver and two bronze medals at this year’s International Beer Challenge (IBC).

Now in its 22nd year, the IBC is designed to reward and promote excellent beers from around the globe and attracts entries from over 30 countries.

The Scottish craft brewer’s Radical Road, a triple-hopped pale ale, and First World Problems, a Belgian IPA, secured silver medals in the tasting awards, while Ka Pai, a light bodied pale ale, was awarded a bronze medal. Stewart Brewing’s core range, which includes Edinburgh Gold and Hollyrood, was recognised in the design and packaging category with a bronze medal.

Jo Stewart, Stewart Brewing Co-Founder, commented: “It’s a huge honour and we’re extremely proud to be awarded these medals. We think our beers are fantastic but it’s nice to be recognised globally at such a prestigious level.

“We are fortunate to have a great team of people at Stewart Brewing who are passionate about beer and work hard which is why we achieve excellent results, so thanks to everyone for their continued effort.”

It’s been a busy year so far for Stewart Brewing, with awards success following the launch of Stewart’s Lager and the opening of a craft beer shop in Leith.
