Sheffield brewery win ‘World’s Best’ award

Triple Point Brewing’s Trivergence DIPA was named the world’s best gluten free beer at the World Beer Awards this week.

Triple Point, who are based on Shoreham Street, entered two beers into the highly esteemed awards and were delighted to be awarded a Silver medal for their Invicta New England IPA and Gold for Trivergence Double IPA.

More than 3,200 beers from over 50 countries entered this year’s awards, where a highly respected international judging panel blind tasted and scored the entries across three rounds of judging to identify the best beers in 10 categories. Heats were held in Brazil, Chile, Canada, Japan, Germany, the USA, and in the UK for all other entering countries.

In each country, category, and style in the first round, normally only one gold, silver and bronze medal are awarded. The gold medal winner then becomes the country winner and moves on to the next round.

Sales Manager, George Brook said: “We were WOWed by the two awards for two beers we entered, and the opportunity to say we brewed the UK’s best gluten free beer. Then to hear it has been named world’s best is just amazing!”

Head Brewer, Alex Barlow added: “It’s a challenge to make big, hazy wheat-heavy New England-style IPA beers gluten free, but we brew a lot of those styles of pale ales along with our lagers, and nearly everything we’ve ever released has been certified gluten free, so to have a ‘World’s Best’ title is a real testament to the work of the team.”

The pallet spill

The Triple Point team now have a quandary, as there are only around 600 cans of Trivergence, which was brewed in collaboration with Staggeringly Good brewery from Portsmouth, left. And those were held back from sale as they were damaged when a pallet split and the can stack toppled into the brewery yard.

George explained: “It was galling to see the yard full of cans, but we separated out all those that only have minor dents. This award proves that the valuable beer inside was worth saving!”

Limited edition cans of the World Beer Awards ‘world’s best gluten free beer’ can be ordered from Triple Point’s website or collected in person from the Triple Point taproom at 178, Shoreham Street, Sheffield, S1 4SQ.
