Mens Journal Best Breweries You Haven’t Heard Of

The Mens Journal doesn’t often dabble into the world of craft beer, but it does from time to time. They like to write about things pertinent to men in general; health, fitness, whiskey, smoking meat, (craft) beer, and various other topics.

They just recently released an article – The Best Breweries in the World You Haven’t Heard Of – where they list some of the top breweries that you haven’t heard of; or in their own words: “Each year, the World Beer Cup gives awards to the best beers in the world. It’s also an easy way to find spectacular breweries you’ve never heard of.”

Their list primarily stems from the World Cup Beer awards from this year. You can read our article on Pennsylvania breweries that won awards at the World Beer Cup. Pennsylvania Winners – World Beer Cup.

They used total review stats on Untappd to gauge size and reach and focused on ten ‘smaller’ breweries from across the world, that to their opinion – haven’t received the recognition they deserve.

Why Von C Brewing Was Picked

Men’s Journal put Von C Brewing as number two on their list. Here’s what they had to say about them, and why they picked them:

There’s a long shared history between Philadelphia, the Von Czoernig family, and beer. The Von Czoernigs are related to the family that opened C. Schmidt & Son Brewing. From 1860 to its closure in 1987, Schmidt’s was one of the largest breweries in Philly. Von C draws on that history and beer-making experience, because as the brewery’s website says, “Brewing great beer in Philadelphia is in our blood.”

When discussing the award winning beer – O.G. Pils:

For Von C, O.G. Pils is undeniably OG. The brewery says the American-style Pilsener gold medal winner is a take on a family recipe that goes back six generations. Von C says the recipe uses two varieties of barley along with flaked maize to give the beer “the most thirst-quenching and neutral flavor profile possible.”

O.G. Pils is an incredible beer and was one of our favorites when we visited. Von C Brewing also has a lot of other great beers to pick from as well.
