Every bloke and their dog has an opinion when it comes to what beer reigns supreme. But on the more official front, the general population is provided with a definitive answer in each category, year after year, courtesy of the World Drink Awards. Last year the World Beer Awards sampled 2,200 bottled entrants from 50 countries, resulting in a whole lot of half-cut judges (probably) and plenty of deserving winners. This year, we’re looking at pretty much the same deal with a fair few different names.
Here are the overall winners of the World Beer Awards for 2021.
