Three cans of Tinnies beer

Winners of the 2019 World’s Best Beer Awards


We all know that Australia is world-famous for our beer consumption, but it’s not as often that we’re recognised for our success in brewing. Just this month Tinnies Pale Ale, brewed locally in Victoria by local craft brewers Brick Lane Brewery, was chosen by a panel of expert judges as the World’s Best Pale Ale.

From the finest dark beer to wheat beer, here’s a list of the other Best in Class from the World Beer Awards 2019 below:

  • World’s Best Dark Beer 2019 – Mira, Brune N°6, FRANCE
  • World’s Best Flavoured Beer 2019 – Taxman Brewing Company, Maple Vanilla Evasion 2019, USA
  • World’s Best IPA 2019 – Votus, 001, Brazil
  • World’s Best Larger 2019 – Zubar, Gold, Czech Republic
  • World’s Best Pale Ale – Tinnies, Pale Ale, Australia
  • World’s Best Sour – Microbrasserie La Souche, Franc-Bois d’hiver, Canada
  • World’s Best Brut Beer – Sharp’s, Camel Valley Pilsner, United Kingdom
  • World’s Best Stout & Porter – Cassels Brewing Co., Milk Stout, New Zealand
  • World’s Best Wheat Beer – NBeer, Lindongjiangzhi Weizenbock, China

Selected through a series of blind tastings, Tinnies Pale Ale beat out over 3,500 other beers from over 56 countries to claim the prestigious title. Kade Wilson and his team of brewers at Brick Lane crafted the ale to have a balanced flavour profile of bitterness and biscuit malt, backed with stone fruit, pine and citrus characters.

On top of this, the Tinnies range also took out out Australia’s Best Session IPA, Pale Ale and Tropical XPA – topping competing brewers from across Australia’s rapidly-growing craft beer industry.

“With Tinnies, Brick Lane worked side-by-side with our malt and hop partners, including a special trip to the annual Victorian Hop Harvest with the Liquorland team,” said Kane Wilson. “We love that the attention to detail brought by both teams shines through in the final beer.”

Get your hands on a six-pack of Tinnies Pale Ale, IPA and Tropical XPA for $26 bucks exclusively at Liquorland, Vintage Cellars, First Choice Liquor and First Choice Liquor Market.
