Someone curates a new "Best Beer" list every day, but it's hard to argue with the esteemed experts who awarded gold medals at the "Olympics of Beer," aka the 2018 World Beer Cup.
Two hundred ninety-five judges meticulously analyzed 8,234 different brews from all over the the world, according to the Brewers Association. When all was said and drunk, the United States dwarfed 32 other countries with an astounding 242 accolades.
"Beer brings people together,” said Charlie Papazian, founder and former president of Brewers Association. “The World Beer Cup showcases the breadth of the global brewing community and winning an award symbolizes one of the greatest brewing achievements."
