Seven Florida breweries earn medals at 2018 World Beer Cup Awards


May 3, 2018, Nashville, TN:  The Brewers Association held its annual Craft Brewers Conference, billed as the "Largest Craft Industry Gathering," this week in Nashville, Tennessee. On the final night of the conference, 302 award winners claimed honors in the the bi-annual World Beer Cup Awards.  The numbers: a panel of 295 judges from 33 countries tasted their way through more than 8,000 beer entries (8,234 actually) from 66 countries in determining medalists in 101 categories of beer styles.  


Seven Florida breweries earned medals at the 2018 World Beer Cup! Congratulations to the following: 






Category 8: Chili Beer (57 Entries):
Motorworks Brewing, Bradenton, Silver Medal: Chocolate Datil Pepper Imperial Stout

Category 10:  Chocolate Beer (77 Entries):
Fort Myers Brewing, Fort Myers,  Silver Medal: Somebody Else's Dream Stout

Category 31: Fruited Wood- and Barrel-Aged Beer (117 Entries):

Developed by the Brewers Association in 1996 to "celebrate the art and science of brewing," the World Beer Cup competition is held every two years, and has been called "The Olympics of Beer Competitions," in view of its international nature.
