Wallenpaupack Brewing Company Yields Five Medals at 2024 World Beer Championships
Hawley, PA – Wallenpaupack Brewing Company was awarded five medals—four golds and a silver— in the 2024 World Beer Championships. The World Beer Championships was founded by the Beverage Testing Institute in 1994 as the first international beer competition in the United States. The World Beer Championships uses BTI’s methodology and points-to-medals system. An expert industry panel evaluates beers via blind tastings in 125 different categories and awards rankings on a 100-point rating scale as well as Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals to top-three finishers.
Of the five medal placements, all three of Wallenpaupack Brewing Company’s year-round flagships took part in the fun with the other two brands being their current Winter seasonal releases. Flagships Largemouth Hazy IPA and Hawley Hefeweizen took Gold for New England Style IPA and Hefeweizen; respectively, with Paupack Cream Ale snagging Silver in the Cream Ale category. Current seasonals Black Diamond Lager and Inside Edge IPA both took Gold for American Style IPA and Dark Lager; respectively.
“The brewery is always so energized when we get word of these awards, but for all three of our flagship brands to take home medals this year definitely adds to the excitement, for sure,” said Brad Beneski, Director of Business Development at Wallenpaupack Brewing Company. “It tells our customers that whether it’s an ultra-exclusive, limited release or a core brand beer that we brew all year long, we take the same pride in its quality and consistency—never ceasing continued improvement opportunities via recipe enhancements or technique tweaks on brands that we’ve been brewing since our first year in business.”
Heading into their seventh year of business in the Lake Region of the Pocono Mountains, Wallenpaupack Brewing Company has established themselves as a force in the Pennsylvania brewing community with popular events, an impressive collection of esteemed awards, and a meteoric growth pattern in the craft beer market. Their products can currently be found in a 12-county footprint in the Northeastern corner of the Commonwealth with plans to expand distribution in the near future.
