Thornbury, Ontario – The World Beer Awards honoured Thornbury Village Brewery with a Gold Medal win for World’s Best Czech-style Lager for its Pickup Truck Pilsner.

After winning the title of ‘Best in Canada‘ in the category earlier in August, this next stage of the competition saw the gold medalists from each country

competing to be named the best beer in the world for the respective categories. Pickup Truck Pilsner outperformed stiff competition with 16 entries from 12 countries competing for top honors in the category.

The World Beer Awards are the global awards selecting the very best internationally recognized beer styles. The competition took place in Norfolk, United Kingdom with over 1,500 entries from around the globe.
