Lakefront Brewery's gluten-free ale wins best beer in the world

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A gluten-free beer from Lakefront Brewery won best beer in the world at the World Beer Cup! 

The beer, called "La Grosa Rita Margarita-Style Ale," was developed by Lakefront Brewery over a year ago as part of their gluten-free heritage. According to Lakefront, it has a lime tartness, a bit of agave and orange sweetness and just the right amount of sea salt saltiness. At 4.5 alcohol by volume, it's light and refreshing. 

Thursday, May 5, the World Beer Cup was held at the Craft Beer Conference in Minneapolis, where La Grosa Rita Margarita-Style Ale was awarded gold.

“The World Beer Cup is known as the Olympics of beer,” said Lakefront Brewery President, Russ Klisch. “To win gold means your beer is one of the best in the world.”

The Brewers Association developed the World Beer Cup Competition in 1996 to celebrate the art and science of brewing. Often referred to as “The Olympics of Beer Competitions,” the World Beer Cup is the most prestigious beer competition in the world. In the 2022 competition, approximately 10,500 beers from 2,500 breweries were entered and judged by 226 folks.
