Iron Hill Brewery wins Silver at 2022 World Beer Cup

EXTON — Iron Hill Brewery recently won a Silver award at the World Beer Cup, for its Queen of the North in the Wood and Barrel-Aged Strong Beer category. The global beer competition evaluates beers from around the world and recognizes the most outstanding brewers and their beers.

Queen of the North was brewed at Iron Hill’s Hershey location by Daniel Patrick O’Leary, senior head brewer at Iron Hill.

A full-bodied Barleywine aged in bourbon barrels for six months, Queen of the North has an “intense caramel malt sweetness and aroma balanced with bourbon and vanilla flavors,” according to a press release. It is available as a seasonal beer on draft, and had an 11.4% ABV, or alcohol by volume, which indicates how much of the total volume of liquid in a beer is made up of alcohol.

“Following my colleague Pete Corbett’s gold medal for King’s Gold at the 2021 Great American Beer Festival, I’m proud to continue Iron Hill Brewery’s legacy as the most award-winning brewery East of the Mississippi,” O’Leary said in a statement.

Awards were presented in 103 beer-style categories during the World Beer Cup award ceremony on May 5 in Minneapolis. World Beer Cup winners were selected by an international panel of 226 beer judges from 28 countries. The event is widely regarded as the “Olympics of Beer,” the release states. The 2022 World Beer Cup was the largest competition to date with 10,542 entries from 2,493 breweries in 57 countries.

Founded in 1996, Iron Hill has 20 locations in Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Georgia. In 2020, the group opened its first large, full-scale production brewery in Exton, to prepare its craft signature beer and seasonal favorites for larger consumer audiences through specific retail and distribution channels in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
