Franciscan Well wins World Beer award

Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery’s Summer Saison Pale Ale has won the Best Seasonal Pale Ale at this year’s World Beer Awards.

The award is the multi-award-winning brewery’s highest achievement to date having previously won Gold in the European Seasonal Pale Ale category of the World Beer Awards.

The World Beer awards are considered to be the most prestigious beer awards on the international stage with leading experts from Asia, Europe and the Americas rewarding best-in-class brews from each region. The naming of Summer Saison as Best Seasonal Beer in this style brings to a total of 30 the number of awards won by the Brewery since 2013.

“While a lot of people will know us for the likes of Rebel Red and Chieftain IPA, experimentation with limited editions and collaborations is a massive part of what we do,” commented Franciscan Well Founder Shane Long, “We’re extremely proud to be on the same stage as international brewing legends and we’ll do our best to be back next year.”
