Devils Backbone wins two World Beer Cup Awards
The Outpost Brewing Team in Lexington earned a Bronze award for Danzig, a Baltic porter that also won a Gold award at the 2010 World Beer Cup.
The Basecamp Brewing Team in Roseland earned a Silver award for Alt Bier, a German-style Altbier.
Beers were judged during six sessions over a period of three days by an elite panel of 295 judges from 33 countries—72 percent of whom were from outside the United States. Judges evaluated 8,234 beers—a 25 percent increase in the number of entries from the 2016 World Beer Cup. Of the 2,515 participating breweries, 807 were from outside the United States.
Devils Backbone Founder Steve Crandall said, “We are celebrating our 10th year and Devils Backbone is still creating world class craft beer. I am so proud of our dedicated and creative brewers along with our hardworking staff. Thank you to all our fans & communities who make our existence possible.”
“I’m totally psyched that Danzig and Alt Bier won medals at the 2018 World Beer Cup! Both are classic styles and each have been award winners in the past for us. It’s also noteworthy that both our breweries received a medal. Each beer having won awards in the past and the fact both of our locations received an award shows the continuity of quality we are known for. Lagers and classic beer styles are some of the hallmarks at Devils Backbone and it’s nice to be recognized for what we do well,” said Founding Brewmaster Jason Oliver.
