2012 World Beer Cup Winners Announced

The Craft Brewers Conference held just this past week in San Diego was one of the biggest ones to date, with over 4500 industry folk in attendance. Hosted by the Brewers Association, this annual meeting of the minds brings together brewers, distributors and restaurant professionals to participate in a series of educational conferences, trade-shows and social events celebrating all things beer. San Diego, a city known for its abundance of craft breweries, proved to be an outstanding location for this year’s conference with one of the highlights being a welcome reception for us at the famous San Diego Zoo. A fantastic event to say the least!

The week long festivities concluded with the ninth annual World Beer Cup Awards dinner and ceremony. 799 breweries from 54 countries and 45 US states entered a total of 3,921 beers for a chance to take home a gold, silver or bronze medal. A total of 284 medals were awarded in 95 beer categories and we are happy to congratulate our brewery friends on their big wins!!
