St Austell’s “Proper Job” named one of the top 10 craft beers 6/30/2015

St Austell’s “Proper Job” named one of the top 10 craft beers

The “Proper Job” beer from the Cornish brewery St. Austell has been named as one of the top 10 craft beers around the world by the UK’s respected Telegraph newspaper. This comes only a few weeks after another great beer from St. Austell – the “Big Job” – was named ‘Supreme National Champion Bottled Beer’ at the SIBA beer awards.

SIBA is the Society of Independent Brewers which is the Trade Organisation of over 800 independent brewers in the UK, large and small, who represent the best of British Brewing.  Big Job won against 150 beers at the finals of the beer tasting but there were many hundreds more that were tasted regionally before the finals.

“These accolades are a clear recognition of the excellent qualities of St Austell beers,” commented Pierre Stafrace, General Manager of Farsons Beverage Imports Company Limited (FBIC) which represents St Austell in Malta. “We are very proud to bring to Malta’s appreciative beer consumers the range of St Austell beers, which includes Admiral’s Ale, Tribute and Tribute Extra, apart from Proper Job and Big Job”.

St Austell beers are available at Farsonsdirect in Mriehel and in selected bars in Malta and Gozo.

FBIC is a member of the Farsons Group.

Proper Job is an authentic IPA brewed with Cornish spring water and malt made from a blend of malts including Cornish grown Maris Otter barley.  A powerfully hopped golden bitter that explodes with citrus grapefruit flavours. Served chilled, Proper Job is a refreshing barbeque drink which is fantastic with marinaded meats, burgers and flame grilled sausages. 5.5% ABV

Big Job is a BIG beer, dry as a bone and jammed full of Cornish barley and Citra and Centennial hops. It’s not subtle, but it’s just the Job for those who love the taste of big, powerful hops. 7.2% ABV

Admiral's Ale was first brewed in 2005 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar. Brewed with a blend of Celeia hops for citrus and Cascade for spice, it is truly the Christmas pudding of beers. 5.0% ABV

Tribute is a Pale Ale and the favourite beer of customers and publicans throughout Cornwall. It is light, hoppy, zesty, easy to drink and consistently delicious. 4.2% ABV

Tribute Extra is an extra special version of Cornwall's favourite beer. Tribute Extra has developed a cult following by pub goers for its full, rich and fruity flavour. 5.2% ABV
