World Beer Cup: U.S. beer is best

World Beer Cup results: U.S. brewers take 208 medals –

If there are any doubts that the United States is the world leader in the craft beer industry, the May 5 results of the World Beer Cup in San Diego should remove them.
There were 799 breweries and brewpubs entered from 54 countries, and 284 awards handed out. Altogether, the U.S. won 208 medals, while 20 other countries won the remaining 76 awards. For those thinking the judging may have been weighted, 67% of the judges were not from the U.S.

Bier Berlin: Tasting Beers from Scotland

                     These Scots brew weird stuff !

Beers from Scotland - that means diversity and variety. Traditional styles like scottish and scotch ales - yeees, there´s a difference - (read more >>).
On the other hand: historical ales without hops - Scotland had no hop-growing tradition - brewed with all kinds of stuff like pine resins, different berries, herbs or spices, seaweed... Crazy brews ! Not enough: awesome beers like the ones from BrewDog and the amazing brews from Williams Bros: some hybrid styles, some brewed with elderflowers, lemon zest and more. Not forget to mention the beers aged in scottish whisky barrels...

Trappist is not a Beer Style !

“Trappist” is not a style of beer. Trappist monks brew pale ales, dark brown dubbels, blonde tripels, quadrupels, witbiers and strong, dark ales. Now, with the addition of a brewery at the Austrian Trappist monastery, there will soon be even more beers added to the list. With so much variety, one could hardly use the word Trappist to describe a style of beer.
