Kenya’s Bateleur Brewery has just been awarded several medals by one of the most prestigious and internationally acclaimed Beer Competitions, bringing home 3 Gold Medals and 2 Bronze Medals from the European Beer Challenge.
Winning a European Beer Challenge Medal is the seal of approval for established and rising beer producers. The Royal Thames Yacht Club, Knightsbridge, London was the centre of the action as expert tasters from prominent beer buyers assembled for the blind tasting.
Judges included senior representatives of Whole Foods, 67 Pall Mall, Waitrose, Savoy Grill, Coop, Intercontinental, Roka, Brown’s Hotel, The Arts Club and Bibendum. The EBC panel of experienced Judges carefully analyse the entries. This extensive process takes into consideration all elements of each Beer including the appearance, flavour profile, body and aromas.
Bateleur Brewery went up head to head against 1,000 samples from 38 countries. High profile entrants included ABInBev, Freedom Brewery, Waldhaus, Holba, Tommy’s Brewing, Thornbridge, L.B.F., and Barcelona Beer Company.
