The Victoria-based brewery took a bronze medal in the Dry Stout category for Keeper’s Stout, a silver for Belgian Black in the Other Stout group, and a gold for Siren Red Ale in the Amber/Dark Ale category. The latter beer was also awarded the Major Trophy in its category, as sponsored by 3 Degrees Marketing.

For 2013, the competition featured over 1,480 beers from more than 230 brewers in 35 countries, an increase of 10 per cent on the previous year.
