International gold medal for brewery

The Cayman Islands Brewery (CIB) team has received an international award for beer quality for their product Caybrew.

The brewery entered the beer into the Monde Selection Awards 2008, (International Institute for Quality Selections) – an internationally recognised global standard. The beer came out on top with a Gold Medal.

Oliver Wesseloh, CIB’s technical Manager, was delighted with the gold medal and said: ‘This is such an important award for us to have received and it confirms the quality of Caybrew beyond doubt.

‘We at CIB knew we had created a high quality beer and the people of Cayman knew they had a great beer, but now the world knows we have a great beer! He said. ‘This really does mean a lot.

‘We wanted to create a beer that would go down easily but that had a full flavour with an acceptable alcohol content.’ The beer is a fusion of the best European ingredients blended with a touch of the Caribbean’, Wesseloh said.

Although the CIB is small compared to other breweries around the world, it is a state of the art facility which has helped the team create this award winning beer and then, most importantly of all, maintain its quality.
