Lidl Racks Up More Awards For Its Wine, Beer
Lidl's Bronzen Schild Belgian Tripel Ale was a top winner in this year's USA Beer Ratings.

The awards keep coming for Lidl US: The retailer took home more than 60 medals from the 2021 USA Wine Ratings and USA Beer Ratings competitions. The company submitted a total of 80 beer and wine products to the competitions.

Gold medal winners from USA Wine Ratings were Lidl's French Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, Australian Shiraz and Conde Noble Sangria, among several other entries. Top winners from USA Beer Ratings included its Atomic Tart Raspberry Sour Ale and Bronzen Schild Belgian Tripel Ale.   

The USA Beer Ratings and USA Wine Ratings look to recognize, reward and help promote brands that have successfully been created to identify with and target a specific beer and/or wine drinker. The competitions judge the beer and wines in three key areas: quality, value and packaging.

"With so many options out there for customers to purchase beer and wine, we're proud to be a destination for a high-quality, unique and highly awarded wine and beer assortment," said Stefan Schwarz, Lidl US chief product officer. "These additional 60 medals help to set ours apart and show exceptional wines and beers can be attainable and enjoyed during everyday occasions."

Lidl also captured 47 medals for its private label wines, most of which are priced at less than $10, at this year’s Sommeliers Choice Awards. Additionally, the retailer's beers took home more than 10 medals in the recent New York International Beer Competition.
