World Beer Cup awards 7venth Sun with silver medal

Among Florida's five winners, 7venth Sun Brewery snagged silver from the World Beer Cup.

In case you missed it, Dunedin-based 7venth Sun Brewery was recognized by what is known as the most prestigious beer battle in the world.

Hosted every two years, the World Beer Cup welcomes more than 200 beer professionals to judge 90-plus style categories, and results for the 11th competition came in over a week ago.

7venth Sun's silver medal for its La Fete saison was the sole Tampa Bay win. But four other Florida breweries — Oakland Park's Funky Buddha Brewery, Brew Hub in Lakeland, Gainesville's Swamp Head Brewery and Cape Canaveral's Florida Beer Company — didn't walk away empty handed, either.

The World Beer Cup award adds to the accolades 7venth Sun has garnered in recent months, which also include a bronze for Vultures From the Past, a barrel-aged barley wine, from Chicago's annual Festival of Wood and Barrel-Aged Beers.

The brewery hopes to debut its second location in Seminole Heights before the end of the year; demolition is underway, with a build-out to follow. The 18,000-square-foot warehouse provides space for more beer, a larger tasting room and event space, and 7venth Sun plans to brew what it offers in Dunedin (IPAs, saisons, farmhouse and Old World styles), plus expand its barrel-aged program.
