Best brew in Sydney

Murray’s Craft Brewing Co. has won Gold in the beer category at the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show.

The brewery, situated on the Mid North Coast, has won:

  • Gold for Murray’s Grand Cru — the only beer of its kind brewed in Australia, a hybrid of a Belgian Trippel and Golden Strong Ale styles, 8.8% alcohol by volume.
  • Silver for Murray’s Icon 2IPA — one of the hoppiest beers brewed in the southern hemisphere, an American version of the Imperial India Pale Ale style, 7.5% alcohol by volume.
  • Silver for Murray’s Anniversary Ale 2 — an American-style barley wine with the unique addition of wheat, designed to last up to 10 years, 10% alcohol by volume.
  • Bronze for Murray’s Sassy Belgian Blond — a Belgian style Pale Ale believed to be the only beer of its kind brewed in the country, 4.5% alcohol by volume.

“We’re chuffed that Australia’s most extreme beers — all brewed by Murray’s — took Gold and Silver medals at this year’s Sydney Royal Beer Competition,” said brewery owner Murray Howe.

“Even five years ago it would have been unheard of for these types of beers to be recognised as among the best in the country. Australia is getting excited about great craft beer! And this is reflected by the increasing demand for our craft beer across the country.”

The Sydney Royal Beer Competition recognises excellence in Australian beer production.

Part of the Sydney Royal Fine Food Show – one of Australia’s oldest and most prestigious traditions in agricultural judging – the Sydney Royal Beer Competition was introduced to the program in 2007.

Last year there were no Gold medals awarded, however, Murray’s Craft Brewing Co. won a Silver medal for its Nirvana Pale Ale.

Beers are judged on flavour, aroma, appearance and overall impression (drinkability, absence of faults and appropriateness to style).

Murray’s Craft Brewing Co. is proudly 100% Australian owned.
