The World Beer Awards Crowns Its 2021 Champions
There’s more beer out there than Budweiser or Coors Light. While these two brews are big sellers in the good old US of A, beer aficionados know that the selection of beers now available is bigger and better than ever. From Belgium white beer to Indian pale ales and everything in between, there’s an awesome selection of amber brews on the market, with the World Beer Awards crowning the best of the best for 2021.
