Double Clutch Brewing Co. Celebrates International Win at 2024 World Beer Cup®

Double Clutch Brewery, located at 2121 Ashland Ave. in Evanston, IL,  is thrilled to announce its latest triumph at the prestigious 2024 World Beer Cup® held in Las Vegas. 

Double Clutch Award Winning Bier

The World Beer Cup® is the largest beer competition in the world hosted by the Brewers Association, and Double Clutch Brewery's Altbier claimed the Bronze medal in the highly competitive category of German-style Altbier, outshining 44 formidable entries. 

This victory marks the brewery's inaugural international award, showcasing the exceptional craftsmanship and dedication to quality that defines Double Clutch Brewery. The winning brew, Double Clutch Brewery's Altbier, boasts a distinguished 4.7% alcohol by volume (ABV). This medium-bodied, amber-colored ale pays homage to the rich brewing heritage of Düsseldorf, Germany. In a time when many European breweries gravitated towards lighter Pilsners, the brewers of Düsseldorf remained steadfast in their dedication to darker malts, resulting in what is affectionately known as the "old beer" ale.

Inspired by the traditional malty ales of the region, the Altbier exemplifies Double Clutch Brewery's commitment to authenticity and innovation.

Founded in 2021, Double Clutch Brewery has quickly become a beloved destination for beer enthusiasts in Evanston and beyond. This recent accolade adds to a growing list of awards received by Double Clutch Brewery since its inception. Notably, Double Clutch Brewmaster, Scott Frank, was awarded Brewer of The Year at the 2022 Great American Beer Festival, which is known to be the largest beer competition in North America for professional brewers. Other award-winning brews from Double Clutch Brewery include the Helles Lager and Helles Rauchbier Lager.

The team at Double Clutch Brewery extends heartfelt gratitude to the judges, organizers, and fellow participants at the 2024 World Beer Cup,® as well as to its loyal patrons who have supported the brewery's journey. This milestone achievement serves as a testament to Double Clutch Brewery's unwavering commitment to excellence and innovation in the craft beer industry.
