St Austell Brewery’s Tribute (4.2% ABV) ale has won two medals at the prestigious International Brewing Awards 2024.

Tribute – St Austell’s long-standing flagship pale ale – was first produced 25 years ago and has scooped a bronze medal in the cask ale category (3.9% to 4.3% ABV) and a silver medal in bottle (2.9% to 4.3% ABV).

The International Brewing Awards are recognition from fellow professional brewers that a beer is an outstanding commercial example of its style. The competitions were first run in 1888 and have developed to reflect the global market for beer.

Proud moment

St Austell Brewery brewing director Georgina Young said: “To win these accolades is a very proud moment for the team and testament to the effort put in to brewing such a timeless, quality beer that can stand up to both old and new beers entering the competition and still hold its own.

“It’s particularly special that both packaged Tribute and cask Tribute have been recognised as best-in-class.

“We’re proud champions of cask beer and continue to shout about how important it is to British brewing. Tribute is a great example of how brilliant cask beer can really be when it’s brewed and treated with the care and attention it deserves.”

Daylight Robbery

Tribute was launched to commemorate the 1999 solar eclipse. It was originally a one-off special named Daylight Robbery but proved to be so popular it was reintroduced as Tribute.

Tribute is brewed with Cornish Gold malt and hops from the UK and the US.

The business owns more than 160 pubs, inns and hotels across the West Country, including managed houses and tenancies.

It also operates two breweries, in St Austell and Bath, having acquired fellow West Country brewer, Bath Ales in 2016.
