The Brewers Association recently announced the winners of the World Beer Cup 2010, a global beer competition that evaluates beers from around the world and recognizes the most outstanding beers being produced in the world. The Association singled out three Vermont breweries for excellence.

The Alchemist Pub & Brewery of Waterbury received a Gold medal in the Gluten-Free Beer category for their Celia Saison. Celia Saison is a Belgian-inspired gluten-free Saison made with sorghum, orange peel, coriander, and Amarillo hops.

Harpoon Brewery of Windsor, Vermont and Boston was awarded the Silver medal in the American Style Wheat Beer with Yeast category for the flagship of their UFO brands, UFO Hefeweizen.

UFO Hefeweizen is a cloudy golden color with a dense, frothy head, and the aroma has a faint but clear citrus-like character. UFO has a soft mouth-feel and a refreshing, light body. The wheat malts and subtle hopping give the beer a mild, delicate flavor.

Lawson’s Finest Liquids of Warren won a Bronze medal in the Specialty Beer category for Maple Tripple. Maple Tripple is enticing, rich and complex, and defies easy description. This ‘once-a-year beer’ is brewed only during sugaring season with 100 percent maple sap from Fayston with no water added – just barley, hops, and ale yeast.

The World Beer Cup 2010 winners were selected by an international panel of 179 beer judges from 27 countries. An impressive field of 3,401 entries from 642 breweries in 44 countries made up the competition. More than 3,800 breweries in 100 countries were invited to compete.
