AF European Beer Challenge Winners! We are GOLD!
Yup, GOLD. Always believe in your soul (and the power of our new range of AF beers).
We're thrilled to say that Juicy AF (our banging sunshine mango pale) and Happy AF (our black forest gateaux dreamboat) picked up gold and silver respectively in the AF category at this year's European Beer Challenge - beating a top lineup that included other great brands like Lucky Saint, Big Drop and Impossibrew; as judged by beer buyers from some of the largest beer importers and retailers in Europe.
Lovely news, and some nice recognition for our fastest and biggest sellers of 2022. Our AF range - which also includes Zippy AF strawberry lime sour - was a long time in the making. It took Steve and the guys a lot of work, experimentation and investment to create a set of beers that are properly beer-worthy and comparable with other top flight (boozy) craft ales.
We've put a lot into making AF beers which look, feel and taste right - with great head, mouthfeel, hoppiness and body... and demand to be drunk on their own merit, rather than as a substitute for something you'd rather be drinking instead. (The trick is in our fermentation - we do some magic with our malts, temperatures and resulting sugars to create a special process.)
We want Only With Love AF beers to be the AF alternative for all craft beer heads - for folks who want all the flavour, body and punch of a proper craft ale... but who are currently stuck with other less punchy fare that doesn't stand up so well on the nose or palate.
If you haven't tried them already, GO GET SOME!
