The 2017 World Beer Idol winner has been announced: the Russian Imperial Stout from the Spanish brewery Cervezas Arriaca!
The second annual World Beer Idol competition was held the first weekend in January in the friendly atmosphere of the Czech microbreweries Zichovecký Pivovar and Továrna Slaný. Freezing temperatures could not stop a tasting panel composed of some of the world’s beer sommeliers from evaluating entries from 15 countries, finally selecting the very best beer across all categories. The judging committee included Britain’s Tim Webb (author of The World Atlas of Beer), the American journalist Joe Stange, and Italy’s longtime propagator of craft beer Maurizio Maestrelli.
