Along with Twistees, Kinnie, pastizzi and Eurovision, Cisk is one the first things most people associate with Malta whether they’re visiting for the first time or they’ve been living on the island for their whole lives. Now, another couple of medals have been awarded to the national beer to confirm just how awesome it is.
Cisk Lager, the most popular iteration, won the silver medal at the Australian International Beer Awards, the largest beer competition in the world. The Pilsner iteration, on the other hand, took home the bronze in the German Style Pilsner category. And as you might have expected, this isn’t the first time Cisk returned to our shores with honours.
The famous Cisk Lager alone has six other awards, one of which was a gold (and overall winner!) award at the 1995 edition of the same AIBAs. Ten years ago, it had even been crowned the World’s Best Standard Lager, and it’s been taking home prestigious awards ever since the U.K. Brewex Awards in 1980.
This is the first time that the Cisk Pilsner has won an award, but seeing as it was introduced just one year ago, it looks like it’s already set for another round of perfect records.
It sure seems like there’s no stopping Cisk, especially with summer a couple of days away. Crack open a cold one for us!
