The Copa Cervecera del Pacifico craft beer cup recently wrapped up in Ensenda, Baja California, Mexico. Although, of course, it mainly received entries from, mostly western, Mexico, it did count with the participation of a few breweries from further afield: USA, Chile, Ecuador, Colombia, Peru.
Of the Peruvian participants, two took home medals.
One is Lemaire Cerveceria, which garnered a silver medal for its Belgian Blonde Ale. Lemaire Cerveceria is the brainchild of Yann Lemaire, one of the partners who started Cerveceria Nuevo Mundo in Lima and has recently started production under his own name.
The other is Pacha Cerveza Artesanal, run by Adrian Calle Silva, who took home a bronze medal in the Specialty IPA category with his Piel Roja red IPA.
Congrats to them both!
