Beoir, our member organisation from Ireland, has just published the results of its annual Beer of the Year competition.
The tenth annual Beoir beer awards took place during January, with members voting on their favourite beers of the previous twelve months. No shortlists, no style guides, no expert judges: all winners were picked solely on the basis of how much the drinking public enjoyed them. Beoir members made their selections from all the beers brewed on the island of Ireland and commercially available during 2020 and a total of 86 different beers received commendations. From these, the top three were selected for prizes, and the brewery with the highest overall score received a separate award.
Here are the winners:
- 2nd Runner-up: Kinnegar Brewing – Scraggy Bay
- 1st Runner-up: Wicklow Wolf Brewing Company – Guardian of the Galaxy (with DOT Brew)
- Beer of the Year 2021: Porterhouse Brew Co. – Around the Clock
- The Oliver Hughes Award for Best Brewery goes to Wicklow Wolf Brewing Company.
