Monte Carlo Beer’s innovative alcohol-free blonde ale has been awarded the top prize at the famous Frankfurt International Trophy, a highly regarded annual international beer, wine and spirits competition. 

The Principality-crafted beverage beat competition from more than 500 similar beers to claim the stellar gold award. 

Judges at the 2024 Frankfurt International Trophy scored the high fermentation and alcohol-free beer a remarkable 86 out of 100.

This result included a near perfect 9.5 out of 10 for colour, an 8.75 in intensity of smell, a 9 in the quality of aroma, 8.75 in body and texture, and a 15 out of 20 for the taste.  

The brewery process for the ale combines “traditional know-how and high-performance technology” with a sterilising filtration system, centrifugation reaching 8,800 turns a minute to clarify, and a natural CO2 carbonation method to revive any sparkle potentially lost in the previous steps.  

“This gold medal represents much more than just an award for us,” say Anthony Orengo and William Scheffer, the founders of the popular brand. “It symbolises our ongoing commitment to providing the highest quality products to our customers while remaining true to our Monegasque heritage and modern identity.” 

Monte Carlo Beer sources all ingredients locally and sustainably, making it a sound environmental choice as well as a tasty one.
