Award-winning craft beer

Specific Gravity Beverage Co

Homegrown craft beer company Specific Gravity Beverage Co (SGBC) has won four major accolades and a “best in category” trophy at the Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) — the largest beer competition for both draught and packaged beer in the world.

Held annually by The Royal Agricultural Society of Victoria, the AIBA attracts around 2,600 entries from more than 400 breweries in 26 countries. Started in December 2020 by Singapore craft beer industry veterans Devin Otto Kimble and Kim Wong, they have launched four offerings: a Classic IPA, Craft Lager, a German-style Wheat Beer and a Golden Ale, retailing from just $5.50.

At the AIBA, SGBC snagged the Gold medal and trophy for Best Design — Outer Packaging for its Classic IPA, Craft Lager, and Wheat Beer 4 Packs. Michael Montisano, head of marketing and graphic design at SGBC, created a packaging look that uses beer iconography layered into Peranakan motifs that connect craft brewed offerings with Singapore and its rich history. The brand also picked up Bronze medals for Best Design, Best Traditional IPA and Best Wheat Beer.

“We are thrilled to have been recognised by such a prominent organisation,” says SGBC co-founder and managing director Devin Otto Kimble, a craft beer champion and microbrewing pioneer in Asia. “It really makes it worth all the hard work put in by our team to produce accessible, world-class craft beer from our home in Singapore.”
