European Beer Challenge 2020
Europe represents a production of 400 million liters of beer per year. There are 10,000 breweries, a figure that is growing, especially with the arrival of many micro-breweries. It is therefore not easy to stand out in such a market. And yet, this is what the family Brewery of Silly did by winning 3 medals at the European Beer Challenge 2020 edition. This one is managed by the largest organization of beer and spirits competitions in the world, which includes the China Wine & Spirits Awards (CWSA), the Women’s Wine & Spirits Awards (WWSA) and the Asian Beer Challenge. The jury for the European Beer challenge is made up of the best beer buyers in Europe – decisionmakers active in Mass Retail, importers and wholesalers. The members of the jury carefully evaluate the candidate beers through a blind tasting. The evaluation process takes into account all elements of each beer, including appearance, flavor type, aroma and structure. The impartial and professional approach of the jury ensures that each beer is tasted objectively and has the potential to compete with the world’s leading beer brands. The Silly family brewery is very proud to have received these distinctions. It is exciting to compete against the best brewers from all over the world. These distinctions encourage the Brasserie de Silly teams to continue their commitment to increase quality at all levels: quality of raw materials, brewing, packaging, delivery and customer service.
