Amber Ella takes bronze at the World Beer Cup

World Beer Cup win for Eight Degrees Brewing

We’re still a bit stunned.

On Friday night in Denver, one of our beers, the rather lovely Amber Ella, won a bronze medal at the World Beer Cup, the brewing world’s Olympics.
For a small little upstart brewery from rural Ireland to enter into one of the most prestigious beer awards in America, into one of the two of their most sought after categories and win bronze is a massive shock – on a par with the 1976 Judgement of Paris! – and we hope it will cause Irish craft beer to become a lot more recognised internationally.

We are one of the very few European breweries to get onto that medal board. We’re standing alongside our heroes in the international craft beer world. With a very large grin.

Cam spoke to Conall O Morain on Today FM’s Sunday Business Show about the win, brewing in Mitchelstown and our new beer, The Full Irish. You can listen to the podcast here and you’ll find Cam about 46 minutes into the show.
