This is the competition’s eighth year, with the best beers being voted on by members from Ireland and abroad.
“In just three-and-a-half years, we’ve evolved from a tiny brewery in the basement of a pub to an award-winning brewery with national distribution in Ireland and also distribution across eight export markets in Europe,” said YellowBelly Beer’s Managing Director Nicky Lambert.
The beer itself is YellowBelly’s number one-selling beverage across Ireland and Europe.
Despite the name, there are no citrus additions to the beer. All the orange and grapefruit flavour is derived from use of the Citra hop.
