Hawai’i Nui Brewing’s Hapa Brown Ale Wins Silver Medal in World Beer Cup

Sponsors Note:

Hawai’i Nui Brewing recently claimed a silver medal in the Brewers Association (BA) World Beer Cup® 2010, a global beer competition that evaluates beers from around the world and recognizes the most outstanding beers being produced in the world today.

Award winning Hawai'i Nui Brewing Hapa Brown Ale -- bold, rich and inviting!

Gold, silver and bronze medals in the competition’s 90 beer-style categories were awarded April 10, 2010, during the World Beer Cup Gala Awards Dinner in Chicago.

Hawai’i Nui Brewing was awarded a silver medal in the “American-Style Brown Ale” beer style category for its Hapa Brown Ale.

Hapa is an American Brown Ale, which originated in the British style of blending different beers to create a single unique brew. It is dark mahogany-colored, bold, and has a rich malty backbone with balanced hop bitterness. Hawai’i Nui Brewing Hapa Brown Ale was one of 40 entries in the American-Style Brown Ale category.

The silver medal is testament to Hawai’i Nui Brewing’s commitment to brewing and bottling the finest hand-crafted ales and lagers in Hawai’i. Our staff is made up of beer enthusiasts who banded together to create an exquisite brown ale that complements the tropical lifestyle in Hawai’i.

World Beer Cup 2010 winners were selected by an international panel of 179 beer judges from 27 countries. An impressive field of 3,401 entries from 642 breweries in 44 countries made up the competition. More than 3,800 breweries in 100 countries were invited to compete.

The World Beer Cup has been held every other year since 1996 and is presented by the Brewers Association. Based in Boulder, Colorado, USA, the Brewers Association (BA) is the not-for-profit trade and education association dedicated to small and independent American brewers, their craft beers and the community of brewing enthusiasts. The Brewers Association has an additional membership division of 20,000+ homebrewers: American Homebrewers Association.
