We are pleased to announce that our St. Stefanus Blonde has won a silver tasting medal at this year’s International Beer Challenge! With a history of almost two decades the 2014 International Beer Challenge received more than 500 entries from 35 countries this year meaning competition was rife.
World renowned judges
According to IBC, the judges include some of the shrewdest beer experts in the land – retailers, importers, publicans, brewers, writers and flavour analysts from all around the world including Norway, Belgium and Italy. The judging process involves each individual studying each beer in turn, considering the appearance, the aroma, the taste and the finish, before discussing their findings with other table members (there are 5 in total per group) and reaching a consensus on which medal to award. There is no predefined number of Gold, Silver or Bronze awards, simply the beers that meet the criteria of each level are rewarded.
