The best beers in the world have been tasted and judged at the prestigious 2023 Australian International Beer Awards, with Bright Brewery being awarded two silver and five bronze medals.
The Staircase Porter, a decadent blend of dark roasted and caramel malts, once again asserted its dominance in the Porter and Stout category by retaining the Silver medal, showcasing its consistent quality and rich character.
Also awarded a sliver medal was the limited release Kveik King Konge Hazy IPA in the Juicy or Hazy India Pale Ale category.
In addition to the Silver medals, Bright Brewery secured Bronze medals for their iconic Stubborn Imperial Stout, a standout in the Other Strong Ale or Lager category; and The Cold and Wet Cold IPA, an American-style India Pale Lager, (Best International Lager category).
Bright Brewery’s commitment to producing classic Australian beer styles for their core range was celebrated with the Bronze medal awarded to its Bright Pale Ale in the Classic Australian Pale Ale category and the M.I.A IPA was acknowledged in the American Style India Pale Ale category. The Hellfire Amber Ale, an American-style Red ale, also secured a Bronze medal in the Best Amber/Dark Ale category.
Bright Brewery’s founder, Scott Brandon, expressed his elation over the results at the AIBA. “We are incredibly proud to receive these prestigious medals, which reflect the hard work and passion of our entire team. These accolades motivate us to continue pushing the boundaries of brewing and creating exceptional beers that delight our customers across Australia and abroad.”
