Clever brewers scoop two accolades for smoky stout
WEXFORD based Drew Fox Brewing scooped a silver medal prize for their Clever Man Ejector Seat Turf Smoked Stout at the Alltech Beer and Food Fair held in Dublin earlier this month.
The judges said: 'It's hard to be innovative in an industry as ancient as making beer, but that's what Drew Fox Brewing has done with their Turf Smoked Stout. The stout has a big complex, smoky, chocolate flavour with reminders of a turf fire.'
The Dublin Craft Beer Cup is a unique competition, which allows craft brewers to showcase their brews to have them rated, tasted and analysed by an expert, international panel of judges. Entrants are critiqued based on appearance, aroma, flavour, body, style and quality. Local brewery owners Malcolm and Andrea Molloy are delighted with their win and celebrated with their head brewer Lee Farling.
In a double coup, Georgina Campbell's Ireland guide featured Clever Man Ejector Seat Turf Smoked Stout as their beer of the month. Kristen Jensen, co-author of Slainte! The complete Guide To Irish Craft Beers and Ciders wrote about their award winning stout.
The Molloys, who are Wexford Food Family members, are very excited about the reviews and success they are having with beers.
