World Beer Awards 2019
The annual World Beer Awards are among the most prestigious beer prizes in the world, the 'Olympic Games of the beer world'. For the first time in years our brewery participated in the World Beer Awards. We registered 4 of our beers, which earned us no less than 5 medals.
Abt 12 won gold in the 'Belgian Style Strong' category and our St.Bernardus Wit was awarded a silver medal in the 'Belgian Style Witbier' category.
Prior 8 and Tripel are Country Winners (one step higher than the gold medal) in their respective 'Belgian Style Double' and 'Belgian Style Triple’ categories. Our Prior 8 and Tripel can now be called the best ‘Dubbel’ and ‘Tripel’ in Belgium for one year. At the end of last year, St.Bernardus Tripel also won the gold medal at the Brussels Beer Challenge for best 'Belgian Style' Tripel.
And it’s not all, on top of that the Prior 8 received the highest distinction in its category, namely ‘World's Best Dark Belgian Style Dubbel'. Prior 8 not only became a Country Winner, but also a 'Style Winner' worldwide, in other words, the world’s best ‘Dubbel’ beer! This also means that the Prior 8 can get even further this fall, since it will compete for the title of 'World's Best Dark Beer'. The results will be announced in September.
