Dominion Brewing Awarded Gold at World Beer Cup

Dover, DE — Dominion Brewing took home Gold in the 2014 World Beer Cup, a global beer competition that evaluates beers from around the world and recognizes the most outstanding brewers and their beers.

Gold, silver and bronze awards in the competition’s 94 beer style categories were presented April 11 2014 during the World Beer Cup award ceremony at the Hyatt Regency in Denver, Colorado.

Dominion Brewing was awarded the Gold in the Belgian-Style Tripel category for ‘Candi’ in the 2014 World Beer Cup┬«. Candi may taste of sugar and spice, but her beguiling introduction is far from nice. Saaz and Hallertau hops provide a clean, floral aroma with minimal hop bitterness and the soft sweetness of apricot and pear lingers nicely against a dry finish. Candi is available seasonally on draft and in Dominion’s Pinup variety 12-Pack.

Jim Lutz, President and CEO of Dominion Brewing, stated, “The special thing about Candi is that it is the first recipe created and brought to production under our new head Brewer, Daniel Louder. We could not be more proud of our brewers for their hard work.”

World Beer Cup winners were selected by an international panel of 219 beer judges from 31 countries. Regarded as the “Olympics of Beer Competition,” the World Beer Cup saw an impressive field of 4,754 entries from 1,403 breweries in 58 countries.

Presented by the Brewers Association, the World Beer Cup has been held every other year since 1996, to celebrate the art and science of brewing by recognizing outstanding achievement. For more additional information, visit the World Beer Cup website.
