Robinson's Old Tom was chosen by 40 brewers, writers, tasters and retailers at the annual International Beer Challenge and included in a lost of the world's best beers.
Brewed with water from a well deep below Stockport at Robinson's Unicorn Brewery on Hillgate.
Brewery director Oliver Robinson said: "Last year, we decided to invest heavily in the prestation of the brand and developed a tactile, embossed bottle to secure its position in the international market."
Old Tom also won a gold medal at the Brewing Industry International Awards in Munich last year. It has been brewed since 1899.
