CHICAGO, IL – The Dillon Dam Brewery is ecstatic over its Gold Medal at the World Beer Cup for its McLuhr’s Irish Stout which won in the Classic Irish-Style Dry Stout Category beating out 22 entries from  all over the world.

The Dam Brewery was the only Summit County brewery to win a medal.  Colorado breweries won 11 medals.  This is the third medal the Dam Brewery has won at the World Beer Cup.  The Sweet George’s Brown Ale won a Gold in 2002 and a Silver in 2008.

The eighth bi-annual competition announced awards to brewers from 19 countries ranging from Australia and Italy to Iceland and Japan.

This year, 642 breweries from 44 countries and 47 U.S. states vied for awards with 3,330 beers entered in 90 beer style categories.

The 2010 World Beer Cup eclipsed the record of the Brewers Association’s own Great American Beer Festival (GABF) to become the largest commercial competition ever. There were 3,308 entries judged in the 2009 GABF, compared to the 2010 World Beer Cup’s 3,330 entries judged.
