The Franciscan Well Brewery in Cork has won six coveted World Beer Awards. The World Beer Awards reward exceptional beers from across the globe

Franciscan Well Jameson Stout won gold in the Flavoured Beer – Wood Aged category with a second gold awarded for the Summer Saison in the category of Seasonal Pale Beer. The brewery also took silver in the same category for Franciscan Well Jameson Pale Ale, with further honours across a total of six categories.

The brewery’s signature and much loved Rebel Red and Chieftain IPA claimed Bronze medals in their categories of Amber Beer and Pale Ale, and the Franciscan Well Friar Weisse added a third Bronze, with the wheat beer impressing judges in the Bavarian Hefeweiss category.

Franciscan Well also won acclaim at the International Beer Challenge Awards. Claiming Gold in the Packaging Category for their Jameson Stout and Bronze for their Jameson Pale Ale, the Franciscan Well succeeded in impressing judges and also claimed a Silver Medal for their Rebel Red, as well as four bronze medals.

Shane Long, founder of Franciscan Well, reflected on the brewery’s success, commenting:

To win six highly-respected awards, with two golds, acknowledges the hard work and the process of trial and error that goes into brewing great beers. This gives us strong encouragement to continue innovating as brewers and work on further exciting brews and collaborations in the near future.”
