After a four-year hiatus, the World Beer Cup® is back and Montana breweries are coming home with awards. Four Montana breweries were recognized in yesterday’s awards ceremony with two gold and two bronze awards.
“We’re proud to see Montana breweries recognized for the excellent beer they produce,” said MBA Executive Director Matt Leow. “Competitions like the 2022 World Beer Cup help to show the rest of the world what Montanans already know, that our local breweries are brewing some of the best beer you’ll find anywhere.”
Congratulations to the following Montana breweries for their well-deserved awards:
Bozeman Brewing Co. (Bozeman) – Gold in the Robust Porter category with Plum St. Porter
Philipsburg Brewing Co. (Philipsburg) – Gold in the Pumpkin Beer category with 5 Phantoms
Bayern Brewing (Missoula) – Bronze in the South German-Style Hefeweizen category with St. Walter Hefeweizen

The 2022 World Beer Cup, hosted by the Brewers Association, was the largest international beer competition to date with 10,542 entries from 2,493 breweries representing 57 countries. The biennial event was cancelled in 2020 due to COVID.
