The Alpha Pale Ale went up against more than 100 commercial and boutique contenders, with excellence and production innovation recognised as the key criteria behind the judging of the top prize.
As part of the Sydney Royal Food Show, The Sydney Royal Beer Competition represents the diversity of Australia’s brewing industry and highlights the quality of the industry.
Matilda Bay’s Matt Salter said the title was a fantastic way to kick off the beer award season.
“At Matilda Bay, we’re all about creating Australia’s best craft beers and this award is an amazing acknowledgement,” he said.
The 2008 AIBA will be presented in Melbourne on March 27.
