The Rebel Brewing Company based in Penryn Cornwall, firmly secured their place in Cornish brewery history at the Falmouth Beer Festival this year when their 5.0% ABV dark, Scottish style ale “Eighty Shilling” took three gold awards including supreme champion beer of Cornwall and overall champion beer of the festival.
The beer which is named after the tax charged on a 54 gallon hogsheads of beer between 4-5.5% alcohol in 19th century Scotland, earned its place in when it went up against 224 other beers from breweries from all over the country including some other well known names closer to home such St Austell, Sharps & Skinners.
Ryan Read, sales manager at Rebel said ‘Eighty Shilling is an amazing beer and my personal favourite. Our brewers do a fantastic job and these awards really are testament to all their hard work, I am so proud to be a part of such a dedicated & talented team’
Eighty Shilling will now go through to be ‘blind judged’ once again in the strong beers over 4.6%’ category , against other regional winners across the country for the prestigious champion beer of Great Britain title next August in London.
