DENVER — Nearly two dozen awards at the 2022 World Beer Cup were awarded to Colorado breweries.
Twenty Colorado breweries received a total of 22 awards at the ceremony in Minneapolis on May 5.
The Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG) said the World Beer Cup evaluates beers from around the world, recognizing the most outstanding brewers and beers in 103 beer-style categories.
"There has been a consistency in medals with awards going to multiple breweries for multiple years," said CBG Executive Director Shawnee Adelson. "The State of Craft Beer continues to show up at these awards which just goes to show the caliber and innovation from our member breweries."
Presented by the Brewers Association, the World Beer Cup has been held biennially since 1996, to celebrate the art and science of brewing by recognizing outstanding achievement.
“Congratulations to all of our member breweries, so many of which are celebrating with their first World Beer Cup award!” said Adelson.
