Duvel pakt goud op Brussels Beer Challenge 2018
Duvel took the gold at the Brussels Beer Challenge 2018, an annual international beer competition for the coveted title of best beer. In the category ‘Pale & Amber Ale: Strong Blonde / Golden Ale’, Duvel was selected as best beer. A total of 1522 beers from 48 different countries were tasted by a panel of 88 internationally reputed beer experts.
The Brussels Beer Challenge is considered one of the most important and prestigious beer competitions in the world. A panel of 88 noted international beer experts tasted the beers submitted from around the world, including from the US, Brazil, Italy, China, Australia, and Jordan. The beers were divided into eight categories and 60 different styles, based on origin, type and style. The best beers in each category were recognised with a gold, silver and bronze award.
Following the gold medal at the World Beer Awards in London, UK, this is the second illustrious international award that Duvel has received this year.
Michel Moortgat: “It's a huge recognition for our brewers and employees who strive to achieve a flawless brewing process to create the perfect Duvel, a beer that’s well-balanced, subtly bitter, clean yet robust,… An impressive show of craftsmanship which is being acknowledged here, in this age of craft beers with new, experimental beers are cropping up everywhere you look, in all different styles of flavour, often taken to extremes.”
