The World Beer Awards took place recently, which involves a group of folk tasting beers from all over the world and deciding which of them are the very best.

To some, it is pretty much the dream job, unless you don’t like beer, in which you case you probably aren’t reading this article based on the headline.

Awards were given to brewers in Brazil, China, and everywhere in between, but if you are looking to get your hands on some of the very best beer in the world, thankfully you don’t have to travel very far, as breweries in Cork and Kildare also took home some of the big awards on the night.
