MOA LUCK OF THE IRISH FOR NEW ZEALAND BREWER IN DUBLIN CRAFT BEER CUP


Moa Brewing Company struck Irish gold with the biggest medal haul of any brewery worldwide at the Dublin Craft Beer Cup held over the weekend.  Moa picked up a total of seven medals – one gold, four silvers and two bronze – to beat over 80 other breweries from around the world.  The timing could not have been any better with Moa’s first shipment to Ireland only weeks away from hitting the water.

“It’s great to see our beers continue to feature at the sharp end of beer competitions all over the world, especially given the likes of Anchor Brewing Company, Oskar Blues Brewing, Flying Dog, Left Hand and other highly regarded American breweries entered beers into these awards”, says Moa Head Brewer, David Nicholls.

“We’re also chuffed to have some other New Zealand breweries sharing in the spoils with Schippers Brewing Company picking up three silvers and a bronze, Invercargill Brewery a bronze, and our good friends down the road, Renaissance, also picking up a silver”, added Moa Founder, Josh Scott.

Danish brewery Coisbo claimed the highly coveted trophy for best beer with their Russian Imperial Stout.
