New recognition for Peru's Premium brand

Lima, November 3, 2010 - Cerveza Cusqueña, Peruvian Premium brand, obtained three important recognitions in the XIV edition of the International Beer Challenge 2010, one of the biggest and most prestigious competitions of the brewing sector worldwide.

Cusqueña Regular got a gold medal in the Packaging Design category because of its details and quality. It stood out amongst the world's six best ones. Cerveza Cusqueña Regular and Malta also received two recognitions because of their taste and superior quality.

The event's jury was made up of 46 of the most expert beer tasters of the world. It is worth mentioning Jeff Evans' participation, who is one of the most publicly recognized beer tasters.

It should be emphasized that for a beer to be selected in this contest, it must comply with a series of requirements, such as: quality, taste, body, packaging design and consumer preference, besides being nationally and internationally consolidated.

In this way, Cerveza Cusqueña continues being part of the Premium category. In addition, it has added one more award to the 18 already won. Without a doubt, these awards acknowledge the effort and quality of its elaboration. Cerveza Cusqueña is the only Peruvian beer that uses 100% pure barley and Saaz hops, which are the finest in the world and the reason for its body, aroma and pure beer taste.
