Almost 5,000 beers, representing more than 90 styles from three countries, were judged ahead of the awards held in Oxford, Ohio, on 11 July.
Scottish brewer Innis & Gunn claimed gold and bronze in the Wood/Barrel Aged Dark Beer category for its Bourbon Cask Dark and Rum Finish.
While English brewer Samuel Smith was awarded bronze for its Organic Apricot Ale in the Belgian Fruit Style Fruit Beer category.
Master brewer and Innis & Gunn founder Dougal Gunn Sharp said the category was highly competitive, but would help the company to be seen as a “great ambassador” of beer.
“Our bourbon cask was initially intended to be a limited edition, but it proved so popular that we’ll be adding it to our year-round core range in the near future.”
Six British breweries also came up trumps earlier in the year at the US World Beer Cup, held in Philadelphia, in May.
Meantime Brewing Company, Magic Rock Brewing Company, Northern Monk Brewing Company, Thornbridge, Camden Town Brewery and Harviestoun all took home either bronze, silver or gold medals.
