Tiny Rebel gives it big
Tiny Rebel is celebrating a summer of awards wins topped with recognition as the best UK brewery at the recent International Beer Challenge.
In the same competition the Welsh brewer also scooped Gold medals for Cali and flagship beer Cwtch as well as a Bronze medal in the Stout and Porters category. Judged by leading industry figures the awards attracts entries from over 30 countries.
Fellow award-winners included the Australian Prancing Pony Brewery, Samuel Adams from the USA and Brazilian brewery, Cervejaria Colorado.
Brad Cummings, Tiny Rebel’s co-founder, said of their success: “It is fantastic to have our beers recognised at an international level alongside such incredible breweries.
“While 2016 has been a year of big developments – from our sponsorship of the Tiny Rebel Newport Food and Drink Festival to the planning of a new brewery site, our energy remains focused on brewing quality beer that is being enjoyed around the world.”
The Newport-based brewer won a succession of prestigious awards this summer including medals at the Great British Beer Festival where they collected Silver in the Bitter category and Bronze in Best Bitter.
Of the hundreds of producers present, only eight – including Tiny Rebel – were formally invited to have a brewery bar at the Great British Beer Festival. The Tiny Rebel bar proved to be especially popular with over 15,500 glasses of beer enjoyed by visitors over the five days of the festival.
The brewery was also honoured last year when their Welsh Red Ale, Cwtch, was named the Supreme Champion Beer of Britain.
Gazz Williams, co-founder and head brewer, who attended the festival, said: “Our bar at the Great British Beer Festival offered a great chance to showcase what we do to around 50,000 beer enthusiasts. Our beers Cwtch, Fubar and Hadouken, limited edition Stay Puft and our brand new Tropical Golden Ale - Juicy went down a storm.
“This, along with the award recognition proves to us that there are many who appreciate our brewing philosophy that places fun, flavour and drinkability at the heart of all that we do.”
Tiny Rebel recently announced plans for a new brewery and community space in their home town of Newport that will mean the business can expand production to 5 million litres annually - nearly 9 million pints.
