Rockyard Brewing was honored to take home the gold medal in the German-Style Pilsner category from the 2018 World Beer Cup®. Primadonna Pilsner was one of 176 entries into this category.
Clean, crisp, dry, old school. The Primadonna Pilsner is brewed with German-malted Pilsner and German-grown hops. A win in this traditional German-style category is “great validation” says Rockyard manager of brewery operations Zac Rissmiller. “We’ve won two gold medals in the last two years at GABF®, a Silver at the 2016 WBC®, and now a Gold this World Beer Cup. To say, it’s emotional would be an absolute understatement.”
This is Rockyard Brewing’s fourth World Beer Cup award and first gold medal in the competition. The 2018 World Beer Cup was the largest yet, with 295 judges from 33 countries— 72 percent of whom were from outside the United States, according to the Brewers Association.
