Savage Craft Ale Works of West Columbia won a silver medal at this year’s World Beer Cup. Known as “the Olympics of Beer,” the World Beer Cup, held last week in Las Vegas, is the largest and most prestigious beer competition in the world.

Savage Craft took home the award for their Golden Hour Light in the Contemporary American-Style Lager category. Golden Hour Light is described as “Smooth and crisp with just a little residual malty sweetness that fades quickly.” Link to Forbes magazine article

“Savage Craft is the only brewery in the state to bring home a medal,” said Victoria Porter, Savage Craft manager. “We are very honored and proud of this achievement.”

Gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded across 110 beer styles at the 2024 World Beer Cup at a ceremony in Las Vegas, last Wednesday. The World Beer Cup is hosted by the Brewers Association, the national association representing small and independent breweries..

Savage Craft Head Brewer Brandon Evans said winning the award was surreal.

“The World Beer Cup is the Olympics,” he said. “The Great American Beer Fest is big but this is a whole other level. Having something like this happen — especially in this category — speaks to our process and what we’re doing. You can’t hide anything in this style of beer.”

“Each award represents not only exceptional quality but also innovation and creativity, driving the global craft beer industry forward,” said Chris Williams, the World Beer Cup’s competition director. “This year’s winners exemplify the spirit of craftsmanship and ingenuity and showcase the diverse flavors and techniques that make beer an art form.”

The 2024 edition of the World Beer Cup saw 290 judges from 37 countries assess 9,300 beers from 2,060 breweries from 50 countries
