Last week our delicious Green Coast Lager wins Silver in its category at the World Beer Cup held in the USA.
The most prestigious beer competition in the world – commonly known as the Beer Olympics – Green Coast Lager came second in the Kellerbier or Zwickelbier category, a category historically dominated by European breweries.
For those without an in-depth beer knowledge: a Kellerbier or Zwickelbier beer is an unfiltered European-style lager that has yeast present.
With over 2,493 breweries competing in the Cup from 57 countries, we are stoked at what this great lager has been able to achieve on the world stage.
Originally known as Stone & Wood Lager, Green Coast was the first beer to be bottled by Stone & Wood and from 2008 made its way around venues and bottle shops in the Northern Rivers before branching out across the country.
Brewed with food accompaniment in mind, Green Coast Lager is a balance of subtly spicy hops with a soft malt profile.
Now 14 years on from its origin, the Green Coast Lager family also includes an easy drinking, modern lager: Green Coast Lager Crisp.
Lover of beer and long time Stone & Wood ambassador Viren Goundrie breaks down this European-style lager and its role in our lineup of beers. Crack a coldie and press play.
And last but not least – a special shout out from the Cup goes to our fellow Aussies who also got on the podium this year: Bucketty’s Brewing who received Bronze for their Pale Ale No.2 and Urban Alley who also won Bronze for Slapshot.
