Out of 3,330 beers entered from 44 countries, with 90 styles of beer being judged, Golden Hills Brewing Co. took home a bronze in this year's World Beer Cup.

"Considering we've only been around a year, we're pretty happy," says Bernie Duenwald, president of the Reardan-based company, who just got back from Chicago, award in hand. "And we won with our first commercial batch of Ben's."

Ben's Brown, the latest brew coming out of their Airway Heights brewery, won in the American-Style Dark Lager category, behind Full Sail's Session Black and Durango Brewing Co.'s Durango Dark. (The company also makes Lizzie's Lager and Clem's Gold.) Though the category had only 12 entrants, compared with 113 in the wood- and barrel-aged strong beer category, Duenwald's very happy with the placing. And he's looking forward to next year.
