World Beer Cup 2012 Winners

The big news on the beers scene today is the announcement of the World Beer Cup winners and the most noteworthy (at least for this humble blogger) is the Gold metal placement for a Mexican craft brewery Cerveceria La Chingoneria. They took gold for their "Hazmela Rusa" in the Chocolate beer category. This is exciting news and a tribute to the efforts that the Mexicans craft brewers are making as they try to break out from the mass produced stereotypical Modelo/Corona swill. I have to say Congratulations to them, I'm a big fan of their beers and am glad to see they are being recognized in this way.

Winners List
Category 7: Chocolate Beer, 34 Entries

Gold: Házmela Rusa, La Chingonería, Mexico City, Mexico

Silver: X-1 Chocolate Imperial Rye Porter, DuClaw Brewing Co., Bel Air, MD

Bronze: Odin’s Raven, Alpine Beer Co., Alpine, CA

Here is the complete list of winners for the 2012 World Beer Cup submissions.

Good news. I believe one UK brewery managed a gold too. Category 23 - wood and barrel aged sour beer. It's brewed about an hour away from me in Oxfordshire.
