Guinness’s 7 awards were for;

  • Hop House 13, which was named Ireland’s Best International Lager
  • Pure Brew, which was named Ireland’s best low alcohol.
  • Guinness Rye Pale Ale, which was named Ireland’s Best Rye Beer
  • Guinness Foreign Extra Stout, which won a gold medal in the Imperial Stout category.
  • Guinness Original, which won bronze in Ireland for stout.

Peter Simpson, Guinness Head Brewer, said the group is delighted with its haul.


“It’s great for our dedicated team of brewers to know our work is appreciated by the experts,” Simpson said.

“We love brewing good beer, so we’re especially delighted with our recent winners at the World Beer Awards and look forward to brewing more award-winning beer”
