World's Best Beer: Weihenstephan Vitus-Now Available at the LCBO

Weihenstephan Vitus - Winner of World Best Beer at the World Beer Awards

NOBLETON, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 24, 2012) - Beer Barons Inc. is pleased to announce that the World's Best Beer is now available at the LCBO. "The World Beer Awards which in the brewing industry are considered the unofficial world beer championships had a clear winner this year, Weihenstephaner Vitus. It won in all classes and thus received the title of the world best beer" said Bryan Watts Vice-President of Sales and Marketing of Beer Barons, the exclusive importer of Weihenstephan in Canada.

Vitus is described as a light coloured spicy single bock wheat beer. "Extra-long cold storage in Weihenstephan's monastery cellars makes this single-bock a really special beer. It has a full body and a distinctively great mouthfeel. Perfect for both the new beer lover and the beer connoisseur alike" said Watts.

Vitus joins Weihenstephan's medal winning Hefeweissbier on the shelves at the LCBO. "A premium beer must have unique character and flavour to stand out in this immensely crowded and competitive market" explained Watts. "The numerous awards and accolades received by the nearly 1000 year old Weihenstephan Brewery directly reflect the passion, expertise and attention to detail of their world class brew masters. We are very proud to represent and bring this great Old World product to Canada" said Watts.
