World Beer Cup Winners Announced
The Brewers Association handed out awards to 307 winners during the 2023 World Beer Cup (WBC) awards ceremony yesterday as the annual Craft Brewers Conference concluded in Nashville, TN. There were 10,213 entries submitted from 2,376 breweries from 51 countries.
The best beers in 103 beer categories covering 176 different beer styles (including all subcategories) received gold, silver, and bronze award. A panel of 272 judges from 26 countries evaluated the entries over a course of 9 days of judging.
“The World Beer Cup brings together the finest brewers and beers from around the globe and celebrates creativity, craftsmanship, and passion for great beer,” said Chris Williams, World Beer Cup competition director. “Receiving a World Beer Cup award is a testament to quality and innovation, and we commend this year’s winners for setting the bar higher than ever.”
Established in 1996, the World Beer Cup celebrates the art and science of brewing globally and creates greater consumer awareness about different beer styles and flavor profiles. Previously a biennial event, the competition was annualized last year, making 2023 the first back-to-back competition.
