Brewery Huyghe from Melle continues to win prizes at international beer competitions. Delirium Tremens won a gold medal, and Averbode abbey beer and Mongozo Buckwheat White both won a bronze medal at the International Beer Challenge in London. The gluten-free white beer Mongozo Buckwheat White also won gold at the prestigious World Beer Award and Averbode abbey beer also scored: a bronze medal in the category Belgian Style Blonde Ale.
The International Beer Challenge and the World Beer Awards are regarded as the world's most renowned beer competitions and each year breweries anxiously await the jury's verdict. Brewery Huyghe is not only a loyal participant in these competitions; the brewer from Melle also is a constant winner. And that is also the case this year: at the International Beer Challenge Delirium Tremens won a gold medal in the category Ales and Averbode abbey beer was awarded bronze in the same category. Mongozo Buckwheat White won a bronze medal in the category Specialty Beers.
And also at the World Beer Challenge there was reason to celebrate: the recently launched gluten-free white beer Mongozo Buckwheat White won gold in the category Gluten-free Specialty Beer, while Averbode abbey beer won bronze in the category Belgian Style Blonde Ale. Alain De Laet, CEO of the brewery, is a happy man: "The beer competitions act as a worldwide quality test for your beers. The fact that year after year we continue to win prizes here not only is a nice rewarding for the hard work of our team; moreover, it opens new doors to new markets we want to enter with our beers."
Which is proven by the impressive export figures of the brewery: the in 2014 launched Averbode abbey beer is now already available in 25 countries and today the brewery exports its other beers to 85 countries in total.Back
