West Sixth Brewing wins Bronze Medal in World Beer Cup for Pennyrile Pale AleFrom West Sixth:

International Awards had over 8000 entries from breweries worldwide

Lexington, KY – May 4th, 2018

On Thursday night, in Nashville, TN, West Sixth Brewing was awarded a Bronze Medal for their Pennyrile Pale Ale in the World Beer Cup Competition.

The World Beer Cup is the largest international beer competition in the world, with more than 8234 entries from 2515 breweries coming from 66 countries. 
Beers were judged during six sessions over a period of three days by an elite panel of 295 judges from 33 countries—72 percent of whom were from outside the United States.

“We are incredibly honored to be awarded the Bronze for American Pale Ale for our Pennyrile Pale Ale,” said co-founder Ben Self. “And receiving the award for a beer I love, and our team loves, makes it extra special.”

182 entries were received in the American Pale Ale category — making it the 5th largest in the competition.

“We’re particularly excited that this award recognizes the amazing work that our entire brewing and production team is doing,” said co-founder Brady Barlow. “Led by Robin Sither and Andy Smith — they’re clearly making some of the best beers in the world.”

Pennyrile Pale ale is a dry hopped pale ale that brings the hops, delivering big aromas and flavors of tropical fruit, pineapple, juicy orange and pine. The range of hop character seems to nearly evolve throughout the life of the glass. Pennyrile’s medium body helps carry the hops all the way to the finish, where it meets a balancing bitterness that doesn’t overwhelm. Mosaic and Citra hops are the stars of the show.  Pennyrile is currently a seasonal ale at West Sixth available November through April.
