Leicester Mercury reported that this year’s competition attracted entries from more than 30 countries including Australia, Italy and the USA, ranging from beers brewed in the largest breweries in the world to pioneering microbreweries.
Brewery chairman Richard Everard said:
“It is fantastic to see our beers being recognised with such awards – our entire bottle range has achieved success this year and Tiger has received two gold medals during 2011.
“I would like to congratulate everyone at Everards for their commitment and ongoing support.”
The bronze medal award for bottled Original is the latest in a clutch of recent awards. Last month, Tiger bitter gained gold at the British Bottlers’ Institute Competition for Ales, Lager and Cider. Earlier in the year, Tiger claimed gold at the Brewing Industry International Awards.
The Enderby brewery has more than 170 tenanted pubs trading across the Midlands and chairman Richard Everard is the fifth generation of his family to run the brewery since it was established by William Everard in 1849.
Everards has won numerous awards over the years and was the Publican’s Pub Company of the Year in 2007, 2008 and 2010.
