NOLA Brewing Company won a silver medal in the “Brett Beer” category at the World Beer Cup. Results were announced May 6. There were 70 entries from breweries around the globe in the Brett Beer category.

Sponsored by the Brewers Association, the World Beer Cup is held every other year during the Craft Brewers Conference. Entries increased 38.5 percent from 2014, and 2,011 breweries from 63 countries submitted 6,596 beers to the competition.

“There are so many great funk and sour beers out there,' says Alex Flores, NOLA Brewing’s "Director of Funk." "So to win a World Beer Cup award and be recognized among those breweries is a major honor for us.”

NOLA Brewing is the only Louisiana brewery to win a medal at this year’s competition. Blue Pants Brewery from Madison, Alabama was the only other brewery from the Gulf South to win a medal.

“[I]t shows just how far the beer culture in Louisiana has grown,” says NOLA Vice President of Sales Davis Cranford,

Bayou Teche Brewing recently collaborated with several Southern breweries on a beer at Sierra Nevada’s Beer Camp. Bayou Teche co-founder Karlos Knott traveled to Sierra Nevada’s Asheville, North Carolina brewery to work with brewers from Wicked Weed Brewing, Funky Buddha Brewery, Creature Comforts Brewing Company and Austin Beerworks to create the “Southern table beer” Sweet Sunny South.

At the launch event, Knott described the beer as a “peach tea-inspired saison.” Its corn grits, black tea, honeysuckle and peaches represent Southern ingredients and traditions, while papaya, guava and prickly pear incorporate tropical flavors more typical of southern Florida. The Beer Camp series will be released May 11.
