LONDON: Nøgne Ø brewery located in Southern Norway, won gold medal at the prestigious International Brewing Awards – the world’s oldest brewing championships regarded as the “Oscars of Beer.” The competition takes place in England every two years and 1,000 different beers and ciders from 45 countries are competing for medals in 34 different classes.
Nøgne Ø won gold in Class 2 for Dark Beer 3.8% – 4.7% ABV with their Brown Ale. British Tavern Porter from Daniel Thwaites Plc and Entire Stout from the Hop Back Brewery won silver and bronze in the same class.
Nøgne Ø is Norway’s leading and largest supplier of craft beer and the first and only producer of sake in Europe. The name Nøgne Ø means “naked island”, a poetic term used by national poet Henrik Ibsen to describe any of the countless stark, barren outcroppings that are visible in the rough sea off Norway’s southern coast.
Nøgne Ø creates fantastic full bodied and hand-crafted beers. ThorNews congratulates!
