Deschutes Red Chair ‘World’s Best’ (again)

Deschutes Breery’s Red Chair NWPA (Northwest pale ale) has won the title of “World’s Best Beer” in the World Beer Awards competition, an honor the beer also won in 2010.

Red Chair emerged from four rounds of judging, all of them based on blind tasting. The competition begins with judging in three regions — Asia, Europe, and the Americas — with the winners advancing to more judging in England. There the “World’s Best Beers” are chosen according to style, and one single winner eventually emerges. This year, the competition also included an award for best label, which went to Le Trou Du Diable, Schieve Tabarnak.
