Melle, 19 October 2017 – Brewery Huyghe has done it again: winning prizes at international beer competitions. At the World Beer Awards Delrium Tremens won bronze in the category Belgian-Style Strong, which meant the 13th medal for Brewery Huyghe this year. At The Beer Awards Averbody Abbey Beer and Delirium Tremens both were awarded 4 stars, the second highest score.
Since the 'birth' of Delirium Tremens – in 1988 – the beer has won numerous prizes, with the election as 'Best Beer in the World' in 1997 as most remarkable feat. And the prize conquest still continues: at nearly every beer competition the beer is participating in, the beer of the pink elephant wins. This was case also at the World Beer Awards: Delirium Tremens won a bronze medal in the category Belgian-Style Strong. This is already the 13th medal for brewery Huyghe this year, an astonishing record.
But this was not the only reason for celebration: at The Beer Awards both Delirium Tremens and Averbode Abbey Beer received a 4-star score from the jury. This is the second best score possible, but nevertheless a nice reward for both beers. Alain De Laet, CEO of the Brewery, adds: "It is always a pleasure to see that 2 of our core brands win prizes abroad. It proves that we have made the right decision a couple of years ago to focus on a limited number of core brands. Delirium Tremens was, is and always will remain our flagship beer, but the relatively young Averbode Abbey Beer has also gained a lot of fans, both nationally and internationally. The sales figures prove this: both beers grew respectively with 8% and 11% last year."To overview
