Does exactly what it says on the bottle! A fantastic tasting and award winning IPA that took Gold in 2010’s highly prestigious Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) National Beer Competition, which named St Austell Brewery’s Proper Job IPA the best bottle conditioned beer produced by an independent brewery in the UK. All the taste of real old fashioned IPAs that are traditionally strong and very hoppy but eminently drinkable as a session ale as well coming in at 5.5%.

Their Black Prince took the Silver Award in the mild beer category as well and all this on top of being voted UK’s Regional Brewer of the Year at The Publican Awards 2009. Head Brewer Roger Ryman was also named the Institute of Brewing and Distilling Brewer of the Year and Proper Job was awarded a silver medal in the ‘Golden Ales’ category of the Champion Beer of Britain competition at the Great British Beer Festival, held at Earls Court in London!

Proper Job IPA was launched in 2006 and in four years has proved hugely popular by becoming St Austell Brewery’s second-biggest selling beer after the Brewery’s flagship Tribute Ale. Roger Ryman said the inspiration for Proper Job was the India Pale Ales of the 19th Century, which were strong, robust, well-hopped beers brewed specially for shipment to the colonies, including India.”

Proper Job is an authentic IPA brewed with Cornish spring water and malt made from a blend of malts including Cornish grown Maris Otter barley. A powerfully hopped golden bitter that explodes with citrus grapefruit flavours. Served chilled Proper Job is a refreshing barbeque drink which is fantastic with marinaded meats, burgers and flame grilled sausages.
