A Suffolk brewery is celebrating after its drinks label designs took the top spot in the annual awards ceremony organised by a beer appreciation society.
Cliff Quay brewery, which is part of the Earl Soham Brewery, based in Debenham announced its winning entry in the Labologist Society’s Label of the Year award.
Head brewer Jeremy Moss, who started Cliff Quay in 2009, said: “We are delighted to have been given this award.
“All credit to our designer Anne Steel of Maui Waui design who designed these labels for us.
“I think they give us outstanding presence on the shelf and the bar.
“This is the second set of awards we have collected recently as last month we collected two silver awards at the Small Independent Brewers Eastern Region Beer Competition, which was held at the St Albans Beer Festival.”
Cliff Quay also took second prize for its pump clip collection, which included such brews as Tumble Home, Sea Dog, Tolly Roger and Docks Bollards.
The awards were the 30th annual competition organised by the Labologist Society, which hands out the accolades to “recognise and to encourage exciting new label design and to thank the breweries”.
The society was formed in 1958 as an organisation which promoted the hobby of collecting beer labels and chronicle the history of breweries.
This year’s competition raised £2,800 for charity, which was split between Macmillan Cancer Support and Keech Hospices.
