Beating off tough competition from nearly 300 entries, we had 18 Irish medal winners out of the 125 medal winning beers at the second Alltech Dublin Craft Beer Cup.

In fact, three of the twelve gold medals went to Irish breweries. While the cup itself went to a worthy Danish winner, we can be proud of our world class beers and the recognition they are getting around the world these days. 

Alltech will be back in 2015 with another convention which promises to be bigger and better than 2014. They kept their promise from 2013 as this year was fantastic so here's looking to 2015.

Take a look at the medal winners and please congratulate the brewers as you interact with them. They deserve it.

While the Irish brewing scene hasn't grown as much in the last twelve months as it has in recent years, the task of picking a best beer from the hundred or so operational breweries has not got any easier. In this the eighth edition of the competition, 73 different beers received a preference from a Beoir member, cutting across styles, strengths and county of origin. As always, every beer brewed on the island and available in the previous year was eligible and voting was open to current Beoir members. When all the counting up was complete, three winning beers and a winning brewery were selected. And they were:

Veteran beer writer Tim Webb has been publishing a guide to Belgian beer and pubs since 1992. This and the previous edition in 2014 were co-edited by the Europe-based American writer Joe Stange.

That means the next one will have a different feel to the current edition, because this is not simply a list of Belgian pubs and breweries, but rather a series of personal observations. This unusual approach really captures the idiosyncracies of Belgium's beer culture.
