Bay Area breweries win big at 2023 World Beer Cup competition

Sixteen Bay Area breweries triumphed at the recent World Beer Cup competition held in Nashville, Tenn., bringing home gold medals for a lineup that includes Danville Brewing, Alameda’s Faction Brewing and Emeryville’s Wondrous Brewing.

The World Beer Cup, which is run by the Brewers Association, the same group that hosts the annual Great American Beer Festival, welcomes entries from breweries around the world. Although entries were down slightly this year, as many parts of the world are still recovering from the pandemic, 10,213 entries were sampled by 272 judges (I was privileged to join them once again) from around the world.

American-style IPAs accounted for the most popular category, followed closely by juicy or hazy IPA and the German-style Pilsener category rounded out the top three, suggesting that craft lagers are here to stay.

The list of gold medal winners included Wondrous Brewing, which opened in 2021, for its Janet’s Brown Ale, a tribute beer to longtime local home-brewing legend Mike “Tasty” McDole. Also winning gold: Tracy’s Morgan Territory for its Hoptomic Imperial IPA; Danville Brewing’s Lucky Four Leaf, a classic Irish-style stout; and San Francisco’s Fort Point Beer Co. for Yuzu KSA, a fruit beer.
