2017 Australian International Beer Awards
Every cloud has a silver lining for Tasmania’s Craft Breweries
Three of Tasmania’s craft breweries scored silver medals at the recent Australian International Beer Awards.
Moo Brew from the south of the state won for their Hefeweizen wheat beer, whilst in the north Launceston’s Morrison’s Brewery won for their Pale Ale and Taverner’s Brewery with their Honey Porter using their own Leatherwood honey.
Tim Penton, from Taverner’s Brewery, was proud of the companies achievement with not only the silver but also a bronze for their Strong Honey Ale. He said
“Given that of the 11 entries from 7 different countries in the Honey Beer category there were only three medals awarded of which we won two including the highest, we are extremely proud.”
Taverner’s Brewery is owned by Australian Honey Products and uses the honey it farms from around Tasmania in its award winning series of Ales. “We use the knowledge of all the different types of honey Tasmania produces to allow us to match a variety of different malts and hops we use in our brews” He said.
Among the types of honey Taverner’s use in their Honey Ales are the iconic Leatherwood and Manuka from the pristine West Coast of Tasmania.
