A huge congratulations to Dark Star Brewing Company, the Sussex based craft brewer, who are delighted to announce that Revelation was awarded Gold in the Strong Bitter category in the Champion Beer of Britain competition at this year’s Great British Beer Festival.
This isn't the first award for this much-loved beer. Dark Star released Revelation in 2010 and since then it has won two other regional CAMRA awards, however this is the beer's first national award.
What does it taste like?
Revelation is a 5.7% ABV dry-hopped cask ale, brewed with five hop varieties: Columbus, Chinook, Cascade, Crystal and Warrior.
James Cuthbertson, Managing Director of Dark Star, said: “I’m really chuffed about this award. It’s great when one of our beers gets this type of national recognition and the news comes at a really exciting time for the business. We’re about to break ground on a new Barrel Aging room and install a canning line, both of which mark serious investment for the brewery and will help keep us at the forefront of the national craft beer scene.
“It’s been well published that we’ve been struggling with capacity over the past two years, but with additional investment and better efficiency, we are now able to grow our capacity and satisfy the demand we have for our beers across Sussex and beyond. With that in mind, this award couldn’t have come at a better time for us.”
Dark Star joined forces with Fuller's earlier on this year, and more on this partnership can be found here.
