Among 1,858 beverages competing, the Blanche beer from the Brasserie de Monaco won a gold medal at the prestigious Concours International de Lyon, which took place on March 22 and 23. A total of 1,113 international tasters tested and analysed 1,858 samples – during the weekend.

The Brasserie de Monaco was awarded a gold medal for its Blanche beer, one year after obtaining a silver medal for its Blonde. The capital of French gastronomy has therefore, once again, praised the work of Master Brewer Valentin Kuhn and his team.

The Blanche from the Brasserie de Monaco (4.8°) is light, and its floral taste is slightly bitter. The brew is made with organic barley, wheat and Czech hop malts from sustainable sources and imported from nearby countries. The wheat is Belgian “weissbier – witbier” style and the citrus nuances, which come from the selection of hops, are enhanced by a touch of coriander.

It’s the Monaco Grand Prix which is now on the Brasserie’s agenda.

Like every year at the end of May, “the place to beer” will be the epicentre of the F1 event of the year. Every late afternoon, as soon as the circuit layout is handed over to the Monegasques, Jérémy, Louis, Valentin, Maxence and all the teams deploy their exceptional equipment on the asphalt. The “Brasserie bend” then transforms into a dance floor until the early hours, from Thursday to Sunday.

This year again, during this crazy week, more than 3,400 litres of blonde will come out of the barrels.

“This gold medal once again demonstrates the quality of our products and the care we take in the development process. This is the seventh award in our history. It salutes the work done by my teams and highlights the only brewery in Monaco. We are once again making the Principality shine around the world, and I am particularly happy about it,” said Gildo Pastor, President of the Brasserie de Monaco.
