Gold Medal for ‘Lion’ at World Beer Championship


Sri Lanka’s Lion Imperial beer won a Gold medal at the World Beer Championships hosted by the Beer Testing Institute (BTI) in Chicago in November 2008. The brand also emerged the winner in the Pale Lager category at the championships. Lion Imperial is a premium brand of the Lion Brewery Ceylon PLC portfolio, and as of now is produced exclusively for export markets, the company said.

The World Beer Championships, a part of the International Review of Spirits, is considered the most authoritative annual beer competition in the US. The competition draws a cross section of large-scale and boutique producers of beers, spirits and wines, and the Gold medal won by Lion is a significant achievement for the Sri Lankan brewer. During blind tasting of specific categories, elite panelists use a scale of four bands for scoring where Lion received an ‘Exceptional’ rating confirming its brew as a truly world class beer, the Lion statement added.

The Lion Brewery Ceylon is Sri Lanka’s premier brewer, and the country’s largest exporter of beer with a presence in Australia, USA, Maldives, UK, Canada and Africa and several European countries.
