European Beer Challenge 2024 Winner Round Corner Brewing

European buyers toast Melton brewery’s beers

European buyers have toasted the quality of beers produced by Melton’s Round Corner Brewing.

The company, which has been based on the town’s livestock market site since it was founded in 2018, was awarded an impressive five medals at the 2024 European Beer Challenge in London.

Its Steeplechase pale ale picked up a Double Gold Medal in the Standard Pale Ale/Bitter category for the second consecutive year.

There were further Golds for the brewery’s Market Pale pale ale, Follow The Green Line (a New Zealand Pale Ale) and Drovers (Hazy Pale Ale) while its Frisby lager was awarded a Silver Medal.

The annual European Beer Challenge is judged by Europe’s leading beer buyers and offers brewers the opportunity to showcase their quality beers on a wider stage.

“To have every beer which we entered win a medal is an amazing feat, and for Steeplechase to win Double Gold two years running really shows how committed we are to brewing consistently high-quality beers day in and day out.
“We’re also delighted to see Market Pale claim its first-ever medal on its awards debut.

“This beer has only been in our core range since the start of the year in cask form, so in its first outing as a Tank Conditioned canned version of our amazing cask beer we are delighted to see it be regarded so highly by the judges.

“I’m very proud of the amazing team we have built here at Round Corner Brewing and these awards are testament to everyone’s relentless efforts and hard work.”

George Tims, the company’s head of sales, added: “This is an incredible achievement by the brewery.

“Alongside the medals and wonderful assessments given to our beers, we’re making Round Corner Brewing beer more accessible throughout the UK in draught and cans in more pubs, venues, and stores.”
