The Cornish Crown Brewery has won an international award, a silver in The Global Beer Masters for its porter.

A brewery from west Cornwall has just scooped an international award, after pouring its first pint just six years ago.

The Cornish Crown Brewery, of Badgers Cross, near Penzance, has been awarded a silver medal in The Global Beer Masters 2016 for its porter infused with Madasgacar bourbon vanilla.

The Global Beer Masters is an international competition that differs from other trials in that beers are judged ‘blind’ purely on taste and the skill of its brewer, rather than country or origin. An esteemed panel of beer experts, beer sommeliers and senior buyers from across the world make up the judging panel.

Head brewer and business owner Josh Dunkley said: “This is a great award and the calibre of the judges guarantees international recognition.

The hard work of the past six years has paid off and the Cornish Crown craft ales are now reaping awards.”

The Cornish Crown Brewery will now be invited to showcase its ales at The Wine Show, in Chelsea, next month – a show that attracts some of the best wine producers and breweries from across the globe.

It’ll be the second win within a year. Its Red IPA was awarded a best in class from CAMRA at the Falmouth Beer Festival.

Cornish Crown is available across Cornwall, or from its brewery tap at The Crown, Victoria Square, Penzance.
