Motorhead’s ‘Road Crew’ Beer Wins ‘Best Newcomer’ at 2017 Carouser Awards
It was no contest as the Motorhead beer captured 57.9 percent of the public vote, which is especially impressive considering Iron Maiden's 'Trooper Red 'N' Black' porter from Robinsons Brewery was amongst the competition. Other nominees included Siren Brewery's 'Carribean Chocolate Cake' and Tiny Rebel's 'FrambUZI.'
Simon Ritson, brand ambassador for Röad Crew commented on the achievement, stating, “It is truly amazing to have won this award considering the fantastic beers we were up against plus the fact the beer was only launched in December. We take even more pride that the award was voted for by the public and we really appreciate that the fans of Road Crew took the time to vote for us. Road Crew has received some amazing support since it was launched and we hope that this will be the start of many awards to come."
Earlier in the week, we reported that Megadeth's 'A Tout le Monde' ale was awarded a Gold Medal from the Beverage Tasting Institute in Chicago, scoring 93 points which qualified the brew as "exceptional."
While the loss of Lemmy Kilmister will always sting, it's great to see the Motorhead brand carrying on strong. Not all is over on the musical front either, as a posthumous debut solo album from Lem is expected to arrive later this year.
