Quidi Vidi Brewery of St. John’s earned a silver medal in the North American Style Lager category for its Premium Lager. The company also took home a bronze medal in the North American Style Premium Lager category for its Iceberg Beer.

The wins for Quidi Vidi Brewery were the first ever for the company at the annual event, which is now in its 12th year. The winners were announced Saturday night in Fredericton, N.B., as part of a two-day conference.

Over 100 breweries from across Canada took part in the awards, having their products critiqued by a panel of approximately 25 judges based on aroma, appearance, flavour, mouth-feel, and overall impression.
