Two Indiana breweries have received recognition from an international beer competition. The World Beer Awards honor "the very best internationally-recognized beer styles" through a series of judged tasting rounds in multiple locations throughout North America, South America and Europe.

The two breweries were also ranked tops in the U.S. for multiple entries.

Taxman's "Qualified" was top-ranked in the Belgian-style strong style in the Dark Beer category, and "Nap in a Hammock" from Metazoa won for cream ales style in the Pale Beer category. The World Beer Awards' categories include: Dark Beer, Flavoured, Indiana Pale Ale, Lager, Pale Beer, Sour Beer, Specialty Beer, Stout & Porter and Wheat Beer.

In addition to the style wins, Taxman was the U.S. winner for "Deduction" among Belgian-style Dubbels, "Qualified" among Belgian-style Strongs, "Exemption" among Belgian-style Tripels, "Q2 2018 Saison" among Bière De Garde/Saisons and "Cache Flow: Blackberry" among Fruit Lambics. Metazoa was at the top in the U.S. for "Snake Hair" among Session IPAs and "Nap In The Hammock" among Cream Ales.

The awards for the world's best will be announced September 20. All country, style and world winners will be featured in the annual "World's Best Beers" publication.
