The McGargles range of beers topped the list with nine award wins.
Overall, Rye River Brewing secured 1 World’s Best in Class winner, 12 Country Style Winners, 4 Gold Medal Winners, 3 Silver Medal Winners and 1 Bronze Medal Winner with 21 of the 30 beers Rye River produce taking home awards.
'A Long Way'
“We’ve come a long way in six short years,” Tom Cronin, Founder and Managing Director of Rye River Brewing.
“The key to our success has been our small-batch brewing (2,500 litres) process, which allows our brewing team to ensure the best quality beer is always crafted, by experimenting, tasting and smelling at every stage of production, consistently delivering great tasting beers for our customers.”
Since the establishment of the brewery in 2013, Rye River Brewing has achieved a phenomenal 130 awards. In the last three years, Rye River Brewing has won five Best in Class Awards at the World Beer Awards.
“Our success at this year’s World Beer Awards is evidence that our approach works and that we have the winning formula,” Cronin added.
