Cheers to victory for Eagleby brew

A locally brewed beer has dominated a prestigious beer competition, this time bringing home first prize at the 2024 Australian International Beer Awards.

Perentie Brewing Co, which earlier in the year won eight awards at the Royal Queensland Beer Awards, took out gold for its dark lager brew – Komodo Black.

The Eagleby brewery also placed third in the Munich Style Helles and German-Style Leichtbier brew categories, as well as first for best German Style Schwarzbier.

Co-founder Kenton Campbell, who is also the brains behind Zarraffa’s Coffee, said the winnings were a “huge coup” for the brewery.

“Especially as we are very much still the new kid on the block,” Mr Campbell said.

“We are absolutely thrilled and honoured to receive such acknowledgment for what has been a true passion project for myself and the team.

“These awards showcase the best of the best and I could not be prouder of our beer and our people.

“Clinching the category trophy and a string of other awards, is testament to our team’s dedication and the local expertise that goes into every batch and brew we produce.”

The competition was held in Melbourne and judged by a panel of 84 industry experts, including 15 international judges.

More than 2500 beers were tasted from over 400 breweries representing 23 countries.

Perentie, located next to Distillery Road Markets, opened the doors to its $6 million, purpose-built brewery last year.

With capacity to serve hundreds, the facility can brew one million litres of beer at a time.
