World Beer Cup 2010: The Medal Count

Published on April 16, 2010 with 4 Comments

I am definitely an Olympic fanatic. I went to the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta (my parents worked the games). I ran the Olympic torch for the 2002 Salt Lake City games. In 2008, 8 of my old Ohio State friends and fellow athletes competed in the Beijing Summer Olympics. And a few more of them competed in the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver.

After witnessing the exciting 2010 World Beer Cup Awards Ceremony, I was curious to know how many medal each state took home. Inspired by the “Olympic Medal Count” idea, NBC keep a running toll of each country’s medals, I decided to go back through the list of awards and break them down into states (I have country totals as well, but for the purpose of this post I am limiting the awards to the states).

Essentially, I was curious to see if craft beer was, in fact, regionalized in this country. Surprisingly, almost every state one a medal of some sort. However, some states definitely dominated the awards ceremony over others.

Here are the results:



With 34 medals total, more than double any other state, California takes the cake. Truth be told, California is a very large state and has a lot of breweries. However, it is not necessarily over-saturated. I credit the overwhelming abundance for shelf space and market share as the major driver behind California’s dominance and proven excellence in the craft beer industry. As a brewer, you can’t get survive in this state if you don’t excel.


Each with 13 medals total, the following states

  • Illinois
  • Colorado
  • Washington
  • Oregon


Boasting 11 medals total, Michigan just barely scraping at the heels of the second place states listed above.


Racking in 8 medals, Indiana comes in at number four.


Tying for fifth at seven medals a piece are Virginia and Missouri.


Oddly, with six medals each, the following states arrive in sixth place:

  • Delaware
  • Wisconsin
  • Maryland


Five medals earned Nevada seventh place.


Four medals earned the following states the rank of eighth:

  • New Mexico
  • Pennsylvania
  • Arizona
  • New York


With 3 medals a piece, ninth place gets split in the following six states:

  • North Carolina
  • Tennessee
  • Wyoming
  • Massachusetts
  • Alaska
  • Utah


The states that made it home with two medals include:

  • Maine
  • Vermont
  • Kansas
  • Texas


The following states did not leave the ceremony empty handed, but were lucky enough to score one medal:

  • Ohio
  • Minnesota
  • Oklahoma
  • Nebraska
  • Kentucky
  • Georgia

Overall, 33 of the 50 states received at least one medal in the 2010 World Beer Cup. Regionally, the WEST COAST dominated the medal ceremony, followed by the MIDWEST, WEST, and the EAST COAST.

Now when it comes to gold, silver, and bronze. I will let someone else with more time and patience to come up with some sort of matrix to figure out that equation.

PS: Feel free to correct me. I did this count at like 2 in the morning, very sleepy eyed.

Congratulations to all of this year’s medal winners!

  3. Ha, I was going to say they should be normalized by population and/or # of breweries. Good job Quinnsi.

    I knew Dogfish and the 302 would probably come out on top.

    Seems like it’s been forever since you were here and we took the tour, huh ash?

  4. Just got home from the large brewpub of the year winner. Delaware bows to no one.
