AN ISLAND Brewery beer has won a national award. 
Earls RDA was crowned Best Stout in the United Kingdom at the World Beer Awards.
Ten pence from each pint sold goes to the Earl Mountbatten Hospice.
An Island Brewery spokesperson said: “We are so proud of this brew, not only because it is our firm favourite but because it is a generous beer — every pint sold we donate ten pence to the Earl Mountbatten Hospice, so everyone is a winner.
“We want to thank our hard working team at the brewery, Chris Coleman, Ashley Coleman and Tom Leman for their dedication and efforts in maintaining the high quality of beers we love to put our name to. 
“Earls is Chris Coleman’s invention and a beer he is particularly protective of, so to receive this accolade is extremely moving for him.”
