Heads of Noosa strikes gold at the AIBA
Updated: Oct 2, 2019
Heads of Noosa Brewing Co. has again been recognised for its beers by the largest annual beer competition in the world, the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA). On Thursday night the Japanese Lager, Summer Dusk, Bock and Pilsner all picked up medals with the Summer Dusk picking up gold.
Heads of Noosa has only been operating since January this year and has already picked up a slew of medals in both their outings to date. Heads of Noosa are one of the newest additions to an emerging craft beer scene on the Sunshine Coast of Australia. Their main point of difference to date is that they have exclusively brewed lagers and it seems to be working for them. Heads of Noosa founders Lance and Craig Masterton were thrilled with the result and are proud to be putting Noosa on the Australian beer map. ‘This is really exciting for us to have our beers being so well received not only by the public but by professional beer judges.’ Said Craig.
‘Flying the flag for beer in Noosa is an honour and we hope to continue building the beer scene in our backyard and the whole region. We’re lucky to have a really strong beer scene around us on the Sunny Coast and we all push each other to be better and to grow market share for independent craft beer together.’ ‘As a brewer there’s no better feeling than getting positive feedback on your brews, whether it’s a new customer in the Taproom or via international beer awards. To have all four of our entries pick up a medal, including a gold, says we’re doing something right.’ said Lance who is also the Head Brewer.
Heads of Noosa currently serves all four beers from their onsite Taproom and bottle the Japanese Lager and the Summer Dusk.
