The awards are flowing almost as freely as the beer here at Redchurch!
Well what an awesome way to start 2021 with news from top online beer ratings website RateBeer that its members voted Redchurch winners of not one but TWO awards.
We were recognised as the winners of Best Brewery in Essex and Best Beer for Redchurch Old Ford Export Stout.
Started in 2002, RateBeer Best is the world's longest running competition of commercial beer. The awards are tabulated from millions of reviews submitted by its global community -- an immense survey of hundreds of thousands of beers by over 35,000 brewers. The awards are among the rarest and most prized in the industry.
"Frankly the last 12 months have been challenging for all of us, but this award is testament to the skill, care and attention of our brewers. It demonstrates once again that Redchurch beers are enjoyed by our customers and really getting noticed," said Tony Porter, Commercial Director at Redchurch. "Since March we've been out delivering across Essex direct to customers for them to enjoy in their homes. More recently we've been shipping beer orders up and down the country, showing that Redchurch is becoming recognised as a real challenger in the marketplace."
"RateBeer awards go out to fewer than 1% of all breweries, and 2020 with Covid restrictions was especially hard on brewers and the entire beverage industry. These are very hard-earned honors,” said Joseph Tucker, founder of RateBeer. "We're pleased to shine our spotlight on this excellent, creative, tenacious group of brewers."
