Yes, that is right. AWARD-WINNERS.

We are overjoyed to announce that Tropical Storm and Porter has been awarded at the Great Taste Awards 2019!

We always knew our Tropical Storm and Porter were some of best beers around, the 2/3 stars credited to us confirms our suspicions, they ARE great.

A 2-star rating is dubbed by the Great Taste committee as ‘above and beyond delicious – less than 10% of entries will achieve this rating.’

Great Taste awards evening is a world-renowned event, with over 12,000 food and drink entries from over 100 countries. This historical event was founded in 1994 and is widely regarded as THE awards ceremony for food and drink.

Sinking in? Even writing this, we are beginning to realise the enormity of it!

Anyway…yes sorry…

We have received some fantastic feedback from the judges, here’s a quick sample of some:

Tropical Storm

“A good citrus note, good sweetness, hop bitterness works well, a good effervescence and juiciness and the strong finish.”

“The sweet explosion in the mouth and coriander spice notes are pleasing, we loved the long/bitter sweet finish.”

“We could drink it all day.”


“A wonderfully rich deep ruby coffee colour, a sweet and chocolatey with an undercurrent of fruit, a great beer.”

“Loved the length of the finish, it just kept giving, with a really lovely rounded texture.”

“The flavour delivered, the anticipated hoppy bitterness, with plenty of vanilla, chocolate and nutty notes, lovely depth of flavour.”

As you can see, the judges were thrilled with our beer, and we are jubilant with the feedback we have received!

Thanks to everyone who has made this possible – next time you enjoy a Tropical Storm or Porter, it might taste even better, as you’re now drinking a globally acclaimed beer!
