The largest competition to date, the awards were presented at the conclusion of the Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America® at Music City Center in Nashville, Tenn. Beers were judged during six sessions over a period of three days by an elite panel of 295 judges from 33 countries—72 percent of whom were from outside the United States. Judges evaluated 8,234 beers—a 25 percent increase in the number of entries from the 2016 World Beer Cup. Of the 2,515 participating breweries, 807 were from outside the United States. Bellingham breweries brought home three gold medals. Aslan Brewing Company brought home gold for their specialty saison: Frances Farmer. Chuckanut Brewery brought home two gold medals for their Bohemian-style pilsner: Chuckanut Pilsner, and their German-style kolsch: Chuckanut Kolsch Style. “Beer brings people together,” said Charlie Papazian, founder and past president, Brewers Association. “The World Beer Cup showcases the breadth of the global brewing community and winning an award symbolizes one of the greatest brewing achievements. Congratulations to all the winners on this remarkable accomplishment.” To see the full list of winners, look here.
