After winning a gold medal for Tripel LeFort at the World Beer Cup 2018 in USA, it's time to celebrate again. At the World Beer Awards 2018 Tripel LeFort was voted Best Tripel in the world.
After the great success at the World Beer Cup, no one thought a similar success at the World Beer Awards would be possible, but the international jury again decided to select Tripel LeFort as Best Tripel in the world.
At the World Beer Cup, 8.234 beers from 66 different countries were tasted in 101 categories. The beers were tasted during 6 sessions by an elite panel of 295 judges from 33 countries.
Tripel LeFort was awarded with a golden medal in the category Belgian Style Tripel. A renovated category with a lot of big names.
For the team of Brewery Omer Vander Ghinste the prize is the ultimate reward for the beer that was launched in 2016.
The World Beer Awards, together with the World Beer Cup, is the leading international beer competition. A professional jury chooses a top three per beer style for each continent. The laureates then compete against each other worldwide. In 8 categories the best beers in the world are always chosen.
Now Tripel LeFort has won the gold medal at the two most important beer competitions in the world.
