Gold flows again for TWØBAYS

Gold flows again for TWØBAYS

With award ceremonies taking place in both Sydney and Melbourne last night, the Two Bays Brewing Co team were in search of gold.

AIBAs 2024

The Australian International Beer Awards held at Flemington Showgrounds run by Melbourne Royal attracted over 2,500 entries from over 400 breweries and 23 countries. The brew team celebrated another three gold and four bronze medals, including gold for the most recent core range addition to the GFB family, GFB Aussie Ale. Golds were also awarded to TWØBAYS IPA and a yet to be released speciality beer which will be released in cans next month.

IPA has previously won two golds at the Indies, and now has it’s first AIBA gold to add to the collection.

This brings the TWØBAYS medal tally to 60 in all awards, including one World Beer Cup, plus one Indies Trophy for Best Specialty Beer 2023. Cheers to the hard work the brewers Kristian, Stephen and Grant put in to continue to brew such excellent quality beers for us all to enjoy!


Hive Awards 2023

In Sydney, another awards night was underway – the Food and Drink Business Hive awards – recognising excellence in the food and drink business sector. Two Bays Brewing Co had been shortlisted for the Best Ingredient Award. This award recognises the development or application of an innovative ingredient in food and beverage products, and Two Bays had been shortlisted for their use of millet in beer brewing.

Millet has been used in brewing beer for millennia and is still commonly used in traditional brewing in African nations but has fallen out of favour with modern western brewers who brew almost exclusively with barley malts. Millet can be malted in styles mimicking barley malts, but has the advantage of being naturally gluten free, so when used in a 100% gluten free brewery, beer can be produced without gluten.

In the end, Australian Plant Proteins won out the category for their innovation bringing plant protein isolates to market in Australia, but we reckon our brewers have done an exceptional job in taking these difficult to brew with grains and turning them into the world’s best gluten free beer.
