SIOS Brewing Trophy 2017


March 11th 2017

Hotel Bleiche, Wald 8636, Zurich


Results from SIOS 2017:

2nd. Place Silver Medal

"English Pale Ale"

Category: "British Pale Ale"


12 entries - We equaled our 2nd place Silver Medal of last year with our (Ringwood Old Thumper-style) EPA creation, so we are very pleased to repeat that achievement :)

4th. Place


Category: "India Pale Ale"


18 entries - This is the toughest category of the day for sure: we got a 6th place last year so happy to have bettered that with our hoptastic, High Hops IPA.

4th Place

"Swiss Chocolate Porter"

Category: "Querschläger"


12 entries - Another very tough category; this category is an open category for beers that don't have a specific category of their own and so it contains all manner of amazing zymological creations.

4th. Place

"Alcoholic Ginger Beer"

Category: "Bier mit Gewurtz"


12 entries - Disappointing result for our AGB this year as it placed 2nd last year, but it was a much stronger, sweeter brew than last year, and the judges did note/comment on the extra sweetness....

World Beer Idol 2017

Prague, Czech Republic

Sutton's has entered three real ales into World Beer Idol 2017 in Prague. This is our first international competition and as it is in Prague, one of the broadly recognized homes of beer, we are even more nervous than we would be normally! Last year a brewery formed in 1455 won the World Beer Idol Prize, so we are up against some seriously well established brews and brands!


Judging on Jan 7th 2017 and the results are posted Jan 14th.  Cheers!

If you were a "Booster" that helped to fund the purchase of this fantastic new beer bottling machine and want to come and play with it, please just let me know!




Sutton's are sponsoring a charity beach volleyball day on 27.08.2016 in Kussnacht-am-Rigi at Luterbach.


Our Alcoholic Ginger Beer is being provided to support the players and helpers!

Thanks to the Viki, The Rote Perle Restaurant (LU) is now serving Sutton & Weir's Alcoholic Ginger Beer & Butcher's Brown Ale. Opening times are on-demand for private parties, but it seems most people are demanding every Friday after work.... so check Viki's FB page for details!
