On April 11th,  the Brewer’s Assocation announced the winners of the 2014 World Beer Cup in Denver, Colorado. Beers from all around the world entered the competition and many of our suppliers won medals. Miller and Coors swept the American-Style Lager category, but the big story comes from our own backyard. NoDa Brewing Company, located in Charlotte, NC, won GOLD for Hop, Drop, ‘n Roll in the American-Style India Pale Ale category!
