Roy-Pitz has earned yet another Gold Medal at the World Beer Championships, this time for its Belgian Style IPA, Mind Your P’s and Q’s. The beer earned top spot in its category with a rating of “Exceptional” (94), with reviews heralding it as “A big, warming Belgian IPA with a nice balance of fruity malt and peppery hops”. The win is the latest in a long history of highly rated beers in the Roy-Pitz line of “Liquid Art”. Previously, Roy-Pitz accumulated four other gold medals from the competition in their short history.
