Seven local breweries left Nashville last week with World Beer Cup awards, while Tomme Arthur — co-founder of San Marcos’s The Lost Abbey and Port Brewing — received the Russell Scherer Award for Innovation in Craft Brewing.
The Cup competition, judged every other year at the Craft Brewers Conference, is open to breweries from around the world. This year, more than 2,500 breweries entered 8,234 beers in 101 categories.
