Unibroue Continues to Shine Amongst the Best Breweries in the World!
Unibroue makes another splash at one of the most prestigious international beer competitions, the World Beer Awards in England. The Quebec-based brewery has garnered 17 medals this year, thereby retaining its position as one of the most awarded Quebec breweries at the World Beer Awards.
Unibroue has once again climbed on the podium with the best beers in the world thanks to its consistently exceptional quality and its innovative approach to beer making. This year, the brewery is especially proud of its performance, as one of its first creations, La Fin du Monde, was declared World's Best Belgian Style Tripel. Twenty years after its introduction, this beer remains one of Unibroue's most popular products, and has earned its claim to fame among the best on the planet. La Fin du Monde is the Canadian beer that has garnered the most medals and honours in international competitions.
Moreover, two recent additions to the Unibroue family who were competing for the first time this year, La Résolution and Éphémère Poire (pear), enjoyed a spectacular debut as they both won — The Americas' Best Belgian Style Strong (La Résolution), and The…

Moreover, La Fin du Monde and Blanche de Chambly won each a Best American award in their categorie.After a blind tasting of the top beers from around the world, Seigneuriale has been described as " Orange and honey on the nose. Honeyed flavour with a peachy sweetness on the palate. Lots of ripe bananas. Slight peppery hops. Alcohol sweetness starts to kick in. Very warming." Quatre-Centième struck the judges with his "Pineapple on the nose. Quite caramelly, with lemon, orange and a bit of spice. Good fruity taste, well balanced with sweet and sour notes. " Éphémère Apple, for its part, has been appreciated for its candy sweet aroma, apple and rhubarb, pear and peach. Good balance between bitter and sour. Warming.”

Refermentation of beer in bottles is a rare and complex art of brewing. Doing it in kegs is even more so and takes it to a whole other level of brewing science, particularly for the style of high gravity ales we brew. In fact, Unibroue is one of the very few breweries in the world who referments 100% of its draft ales directly in the kegs, with fresh yeast only and no false carbonation.
So for our award winning international flagship we took our good old time and made absolutely sure we got it right with the exact same consistent quality and balance Unibroue fans are used to getting in the bottle.
And now it’s ready, yours to discover and enjoy, La Fin du Monde on TAP, at last... Now that’s The End of The World!
