Big Job, big prize 22/12/2017

Big Job, big prize

St Austell’s Big Job has recently been crowned the Champion Bottled Beer of Britain in CAMRA’s (Campaign for Real Ale) prestigious annual award, the competition that recognises the best bottle conditioned real ale in the country.

Big Job wowed the judges with its 'powerfully hoppy', smooth, citrus fruit taste and hoppy, lemon smell. Big Job is a big beer with a 7.2 per cent ABV and as the judges all agreed, it is anything but subtle.

With over 188,000 members around the world, CAMRA is considered one of the most successful UK consumer campaigns ever, whose aim is to have good quality real ale, ciders and perries and to have thriving pubs and clubs in every community.

CAMRA was founded in the UK by four real ale enthusiasts in 1971 when traditional rich-flavoured ales were under threat from brewers producing bland and flavourless beer. Through CAMRA's tireless campaigning, real ale is now produced by over 1,500 breweries across the UK – a tenfold increase since the campaign started.

Founded in 1851 by Cornishman Walter Hicks, today St Austell Brewery remains 100% independent and family owned. St Austell Brewery produces many of the region’s most popular beers and operates a growing and diverse business.

The St Austell range of beers, including Big Job, are imported, marketed and distributed by Farsons Beverage Imports Company (FBIC) Limited, a member of the Farsons Group.
