Boyne Brewhouse has won eight awards at the seventh annual ‘Dublin Craft Beer and Cider Cup’ competitions hosted by the Alltech Craft Brews and Food Fair. The award wins included a Gold medal and ‘Best in Speciality Category’ for its ‘Saison’ beer and two Silver medals for ‘Imperial Stout’ and the limited edition ‘Raspberry Sour’.

Showcasing more than 320 craft beers, ciders and spirits, the event celebrates the best of the Irish craft brewing and distilling sector. The contests allow craft brewers and cider makers to showcase their brews and have them rated, tasted and analysed by an expert, international panel of judges. The drinks are critiqued based on appearance, aroma, flavour, body, style and quality.

Using their own spring water and honey bees ensures that from blossom, to bottle, you get the finest and most refreshing Irish Apple Cider.

Richard Hamilton, Creative Brewer with Boyne Brewhouse, said: ‘We’re delighted to have won these awards. We take great pride in ensuring that we use only the best ingredients and our own Boyne Valley spring water to make our craft beers. A lot of time has been taken to perfect our recipes and winning these acclaimed awards is testament to the quality of these ingredients, brewing styles and inspirations.’
