Doom Bar and Sharps Brewery- Living the Brand

CoolBrands have just voted Doom Bar, the great Cornish beer as the coolest ale brand in the UK! An Expert Council of influencers and members of the British public chose Doom Bar.

Approximately 1,250 were shortlisted and two separate groups of voters - the independent and voluntary Expert Council, comprising 39 opinion-formers and a nationally representative group of just under 3,000 British adults scored this shortlist. The opinions of the Expert Council (80%) and the British public (20%) were combined and the best performing brands awarded CoolBrands status.

Out of all of these brands, Doom Bar was top of the ales category, sitting alongside other category winners such as Dom Perignon (Champagne) and Absolut (Vodka). A stunning achievement.

Doom Bar Bitter is named after an infamous sandbank at the mouth of the Camel Estuary in North Cornwall. Where the river Camel meets the Atlantic Ocean on Cornwall’s rugged north coast, a sand bank, centuries old, known as the Doom Bar protects and calms this beautiful estuary.

 Brand Manager, James Nicholls has developed an exciting exhibition stand with a 10m x 10 m bar that combines with a rowing competition, based on traditional Cornish Pilot Gigs, using concept 2 rowers and an interactive video to race the “Doom Bar”.
