Lakefront Brewery's La Gosa Rita won gold at the World Beer Cup in Minneapolis on May 5 – taking the title for world's best gluten-free beer.

La Gosa Rita is a margarita-style ale developed by Lakefront Brewery over a year ago. The brewery describes the gluten-free beverage as having "a bright lime tartness, a bit of agave and orange sweetness and just the right amount of sea salt saltiness."

"The World Beer Cup is known as the Olympics of beer," Lakefront Brewery President Russ Klisch said in a news release. "To win gold means your beer is one of the best in the world."

In the 2022 competition, approximately 10,500 beers from 2,500 breweries were entered and judged by 226 folks in Minneapolis.
