The World’s Best Beers Win Awards At The 2018 World Beer Cup
After three days of judging by 295 judges from 33 countries, 8,234 beers were evaluated, and 302 beers won awards, according to the Brewers Association, a not-for-profit trade group of small and independent American craft brewers. Nearly three-fourth of the 295 judges were from outside the United States.
“The World Beer Cup showcases the breadth of the global brewing community, and winning an award symbolizes one of the greatest brewing achievements,” says Charlie Papazian, the Brewers Association’s founder and past president.
