Great Heck Brewery takes the top award for design

The Great Heck Brewery, owned and operated by the energetic Denzil Vallance, came to life in 2008 in one of the most prodigious brewing regions of the world. A passion has turned into a business, and the eclectic approach to both the taste of their amazing beers and their look has been recognised this year with the World’s Best Label award.

The Black Jesus beer is zesty and unusual, just like its label, which captured the judges’ eyes for being memorable, unique and expressive. Find out more about this great little brewery at www.greatheckbrewery.co.uk

Haacht Brewery Belgium proud to be home of the World’s Best Beer

The Haacht Brewery in Belgium is now the proud owner of two World Beer Awards trophies after being presented with their awards from the 2014 competition. On Thursday 6 December, CEO Frédéric van der Kelen and Brewmaster Karel Vermeiren welcomed us to their stunning brewery to receive the eagerly awaited prize for the World’s Best Beer. Tongerlo Blond beat off strong competition to be crowned World’s Best Pale Beer before taking the overall title. They are very much looking forward to competing to retain their crown in next year’s awards.

There was also time to fit in a quick visit to the nearby Malheur Brewery to present their trophy for World’s Best Dark Beer, Malheur 12. Managing Director Manu De Landtsheer shared his delight in winning a category in these prestigious awards and hopes to be able to enter his beers for years to come.
