Weihenstephan racks up award in Amsterdam

Weihenstephan has racked up several awards around the world and in Amsterdam.

At the “Australian International Beer Awards” the Weihenstephan „Kristallweißbier“ won the overall price of best beer. The “International Beer Challenge” in Great Britain awarded Weihenstephan a gold medal for its “Hefeweißbier”. And the Weihenstephaner “Kristallweißbier” received a gold medal during the yearly Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival.

And finally it was the Dutch’s turn to praise Weihenstephan during the Bockbier Festival in the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam in late October. Of a total of 60 sampled beers, only two were placed in the “worldclass”: Weihenstephan’s “Vitus” and their double bock “Korbinian”.
