Cornish brewed ale celebrates leading award

Although Cornish brewed ales are available all over the UK, there’s no better way to enjoy one than in the comfort of a traditional Cornish pub.

Cheffy cooks some wonderful dishes when we visit John Fowler’s holiday lodges in Cornwall, but I like to get out and enjoy locally produced food washed down with a golden ale.

St Austell Brewery is one of the county’s leading ale breweries and is celebrating a top award for one of its most famous pale ales.

Proper Job, an authentic IPA brewed with spring water and Cornish gold malt, has won the Draught Premium Bitter award at the finals of the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) National Championships.

The award follows a dramatic rise in popularity for the ale, having initially been brewed in 2006 as a seasonal beer. Figures are now up by over 35% year-on-year and the ale has become a permanent fixture in the Brewery’s portfolio.

Head brewer for St Austell Brewery, Roger Ryman said: “We are delighted that Proper Job won at the SIBA awards.”

“Proper Job is a real treat of a beer which customers love, and it is fast becoming one of our most successful and most award winning ales.

“We are pleased to announce that owing to demand, Proper Job will be on sale in a 5 Litre keg from April.”

If you’re a lover of ales, St Austell Brewery is 45 minutes from Killigarth Manor Holiday Park and offers tours at just £10 for adults and £8 for senior citizens.
