Unibroue, a local Quebec brewery, has been awarded the World’s Best Belgian Style Witbier title at the World Beer Awards in London U.K. It was the brewery’s Blanche de Chambly which took the award. It has the distinction of being the top beer out of about 600 beers that were entered from 32 countries in a blind taste test. Blanche du Chambly is a classic wheat beer that is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and third time being recognized at the World Beer Awards, winning World’s Best Spiced Wheat Beer last year and America’s best Spiced Wheat Beer in 2010.
“The fact that our creativity and brewing expertise keep being recognized”, says Sylvain Bouchard, beer sommelier at Unibroue, “after having garnered over 185 international awards for our products, such as La Fin du Monde, Quelque Chose, Terrible, Maudite, Trois Pistoles, Unibroue 17 and Éphémère Apple, only reinforces our position as a leader among the world’s brewers.”
