Birra Antoniana hoarded medals at World Beer Challenge


Gold, Silver and bronze: these are the colors of the medals won by our beers at the “World Beer Challenge” 2017. The 7th edition of the international beer competition held in Estoril, Portugal ended on the 27th of May, and few days ago we got the amazing results.


Our luggage was heavier than when we arrived, as we had to bring to Italy not one, but ten medals!

At the brewery competition took part more than 600 beers, which have been evaluated by a jury composed by 150 members coming from 29 different countries: on the podium stepped 124 beers, winning the prize for the best beers in their category. Birra Antoniana stood up with ten references of our ranges.

The gold medal was for the hoppy and aromatic Birra Antoniana Altinate and Birra Antoniana Pasubio, both inspired by the American brewery tradition but revisited with Italian touch and creativity.

The gold medal went also to Birra Antoniana Ai Tadi, perfumed wheat blanche, and to Birra Antoniana Marechiaro, one of the last creations of Birrificio Antoniano born in collaboration with AVPN, Associazione Verace Pizza Napoletana. The AVPN is a non-profit organization founded in 1984 with the aim of promoting and protecting in Italy and worldwide the “True Neapolitan Pizza”. Marechiaro has been included among the approved suppliers by AVPN, as it has been conceived for being the perfect pair with the true Neapolitan pizza.


The silver medals were earned by the Strong Ale Birra Antoniana Eremitani and Birra Antoniana Portello, two cornerstones of our “Classic” range as well as to two of our Slow Food Presidia beers, namely Birra Antoniana Borgo della Paglia and Birra Antoniana Ponte Molino, both brewed with cereals coming from organic farming.

Finally Birra Antoniana Stile Vienna, the first beer of our family, and Birra Antoniana La Torlonga, from Slow Food Presìdia, achieved the bronze medal.

After the first success achieved by Birra Antoniana Pasubio at Cerevisia Prize 2017, this competition brought to Birrificio Antoniano further confirmations and energies for facing this year full of surprises and challenges!
