D'Oude Maalderij Wins Nine Medals At The London Beer Competition


Jef Pirens shares about D'Oude Maalderij's win at the 2020 London Beer Competition.

Maximo beer received 82 points, good for a silver medal. Also received a silver medal: Stoffoasje and Qantelaar. Jef Pirens' brewery also scored some bronze medals. Such is the case for Farang, Optimo, Redenaar, and Deo DOM Brewery. Blackout, mindfucking blonde, also received a bronze medal. The house beer The Mash, from the restaurant of the same name at the brewery, also won bronze.

“It is the first time that I took part in a real 'beer competition',” says Jef Pirens. “Normally I am not keen to participate in competitions, as most of them are quite lavish in handing out prizes and usually comes with a high entry price per beer. I had a different feeling about this, still quite young, match. Your beers are individually tested against various criteria by a panel of tasters. The tasting only counts for 40 per cent of the points, the rest of the points goes to value (price/quality) and the packaging. In that respect, I think it is a fair competition and I am therefore pleasantly surprised that as a small brewery in Izegem I have won nine medals.”
