A new Belgian beer, named after the cow’s mouth and its ability to generate milk, has been awarded the title of “Best Beer of All Time” by the International Beer Writers Association (IBWA).
In addition to winning the accolade, The Bruery also became the first brewery in history to receive the prestigious IBWA Silver medal for “Best Brewed Beer”.
The award comes at a time when more breweries are using traditional brewing methods to produce beers that are lower in alcohol, lower in calories and less sugar than they are today.
The Bruery’s collaboration with the renowned Dutch brewery Stumptown Brewing Company was a key factor in winning the award.
The brewery’s “Rough Stone” Pale Ale, which is brewed with barley malt, wheat and hops, was named best beer in the world by the IBWA.
In a statement, The Bierbier Brewery in Dublin said it was delighted with the accolades, adding it was proud to be recognised by a global organisation like the IBPA.
“We are incredibly proud to receive this prestigious award,” said co-owner David M. Higgins.
“Our team at the Bruery have worked tirelessly for many years to create a world-class beer and it’s only natural that we would be honoured to win this prestigious accolade.”
The brewery also thanked the Guinness Book of World Records for its recognition of the brewery’s beers as the best in the “World’s Best Brewed” category.
The accolade is part of the IBWAA’s annual World Beer Awards and was created by the IWA to recognise the best beers produced worldwide.
