CROYDON – Pennsylvania and Bucks County are now home to the best international lager.
Neshaminy Creek Brewing Company (Neshaminy Creek) received gold for its Warehouse Lager on Thursday May 5 at the 2022 World Beer Cup, a global beer competition that evaluates beers from around the world and recognizes the most outstanding brewers and their beers, by the Brewers Association.
Warehouse Lager (4.5 percent), a Keystone beer at Neshaminy Creek and part of their year-round core lineup, took first place out of 231 entries in the International Pilsener or International Lager category. It is a Mexican-style pale golden lager with a clean, gritty malt character with subtle sweetness and a crisp, dry finish with a whisper of German noble hops. It’s available in cans and on draft at Neshaminy Creek taprooms in Croydon, New Hope and Dublin, as well as bottle stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware and Maryland, including major retailers like ShopRite. , GIANT and Wegman’s.

Entries were evaluated by an elite panel of 226 judges from 28 countries.
