After winning the World’s Best Dark Beer award for our Unibroue 17 in 2010, we’ve just received the World’s Best Belgian Style Witbier title for the Blanche de Chambly, at the World Beer Awards in London U.K. Our classic wheat beer, celebrating its 20th anniversary this year, was chosen among nearly 600 beers entered from 32 countries. This is the Blanche de Chambly’s third nod from the WBA, which had declared it World’s Best Spiced Wheat Beer in 2011, and The Americas Best Spiced Wheat Beer in 2010.
Don de Dieu was also awarded Thursday with the title of World’s Best Belgian Strong Pale Beer. Over the years, several of our ales have been decorated at the World Beer Awards. Among them, Quelque Chose (World’s best fruit wheat beer), Maudite (America’s best amber Pale Ale), Unibroue 17, Blonde de Chambly (America’s Best American standard Pale Ale), Éphémère Blackcurrent (World's Best Fruit Wheat Beer) and La Fin du Monde (America’s best Blond/Golden Pale Ale).
Unibroue is the most rewarded Quebecois brewery at the World Beer Awards and to date, our ales wear more than 185 international medals around their necks. So we raise our glass with you today to share our enthusiasm - Cheers!
