Another round of medals at World Beer Awards 2022!
VOTED COUNTRY WINNER IN THE BELGIAN STYLE DUBBEL CATEGORY
Last week, the results of the World Beer Awards, the most prestigious beer competition in the world, were announced!
Whereas our Wipers Times Blond (previously: Wipers Times 14) was awarded last year a gold medal and also crowned ‘Country Winner’ in category ‘Belgian Style Blond’, this year our Wipers Times Dubbel got the honour to receive a gold medal and to be crowned ‘Country Winner’ in the category ‘Belgian Style Dubbel’. This means that Wipers Times Dubbel is not only Belgium’s best Dubbel beer, but the beer is also in the running to be crowned World’s Best Dubbel Beer! The winner will be announced at the end of August.
SILVER FOR TREMIST
Tremist, our saison beer, took home a silver medal in the ‘Saison’ category, just a last year. Tremist is a refreshing, copper blond beer (saison style) with an alcohol content of 6.4%. It is the result of a collaboration between Belgian design furniture company Extremis and the Kazematten brewery. This farmhouse ale reflects a sunny day in a glass of fresh, blonde beer. Slightly veiled and nicely rounded with a creamy white foam head. A superb thirst-quencher.
The saison beer style is reminiscent of the farmhouse ales that farmers traditionally brewed in the quiet winter months to quench the thirst of their seasonal workers during the hot summer months.
BRONZE FOR WIPERS TIMES TRIPEL
Just like Wipers Times Dubbel, Wipers Times Tripel only appeared for the first time in the summer of 2021 and won a fine bronze medal in the very competitive 'Belgian Style Tripel' category.
Wipers Times Tripel is a fruity, full-bodied top-fermented beer (8.2% alc. vol.). Like our Wipers Times Blond, our tripel is brewed with 4 grains, 4 spices and local hops only. We use malted barley and wheat, as well as flaked maize and oats, infusing the mash with 4 spices and the seeds of the milk thistle (which was also featured on the front page of the satirical trench magazine ‘The Wipers Times’).
