Bottled Doom Bar was also recognised at the International Beer Awards 2006, winning a place in the World's Top 50 Bottled Beers.

Atlantic IPA (4.9% abv)

A dry beer, higher in alcohol as is typical of IPAs. The labelling bears the logo of the RNLI, and some proportion of sales is donated to them.

Eden Pure Ale (4.4% abv)

A lighter ale with more hop flavour. The website states it is made with least environmental impact, in conjunction with the Eden Projectmarker.
