On March 6, within the framework of the Barcelona Beer Challenge’s events, the award ceremony took place, where medals were given out to those beers selected by the jury of the Barcelona Beer Challenge. There was barely enough room in the auditorium at the Maritime Museum of Barcelona to accommodate all the brewers who attended this public event that brought recognition to their work.
The ceremony, one of the events of the Barcelona Beer Festival, began by thanking the more-than-150 breweries that participated in the first edition of the Barcelona Beer Challenge. The winners (gold, silver and bronze) of the 40 competing categories were then announced, leading up to the announcement of the brewery awarded the “2016 Best Brewery” prize, which recognizes the brewery with the highest average score for their three best beers registered for in competition. This award went to the Compañía Cervecera del Montseny (Montseny Brewing Company).
