Hemingway’s Brewery has flown the flag for Far North Queensland’s burgeoning craft beer industry by bagging gold at the 2021 Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) held on Thursday 20 May in Melbourne.

Hemingway’s Brewery CEO Tony Fyfe said it’s great news for Hemingway’s and Far North Queensland’s industry.

 “After what has been a difficult year, this is the type of news we want to shout from the rooftops! We entered eight beers in the AIBA competition, the largest beer awards in the world, and came away with eight medals including five gold, one silver and two bronze.

“Kudos and thanks go to our hard working and talented brew team who truly deserve this recognition.  Craft brewing is an artisan process and one that requires great skill, patience and attention to detail.  It is not something that anyone can do so we feel really lucky to have the best here in Cairns in Nico, Paul and Tim,” said Mr Fyfe.

Hemingway’s brewers, Head Brewer Nico Leffler and his brew team Paul Cook and Tim Finney, attended last night’s awards but are expected back in the brewery on Monday.

The Prospector Pilsner - Gold

7th Heaven Tropical Ale - Gold

Three Falls NEIPA - Gold

Bump Track Dark Lager – Silver
