TAPS, Bottle Logic, Noble Ale Win At Great American Beer Festival
Congrats to our tragic kingdom, as a trio of Orange County rockstars showed the Great American Beer Festival over the weekend where the talent's at. Those honored remind us that quality above all is what matters-- not how long you've been around or the square footage of your brewery. Let's discuss winners.
Not feeling a sophomore slump, Bottle Logic logged two gold medals. They received one for Lagerithm Dark Lager (again) and another for their Cobaltic Baltic-Style Porter. Nice job, fellas. And lucky us-- both beers are currently on tap in their tasting room.
Next up: Noble Ale Works keeps the momentum going, earning a bronze for one Nose Candy Session IPA. Oh, and it's available for growler fills! We expect nothing less from this Anaheim mainstay.
Finally, our friends over TAPS Fish House & Brewery kicked some ass, earning a win for Mid-Size Brewpub and Mid-Size Brewpub Brewer of the Year. But wait, there's more! They bronzed for a Pilsener known as Amend This!, got a shiny silver thanks to their version of Kellerbier, and wrapped it up with a pair o' gold from Velvet Hog Chocolate Porter and Irish Red Ale. Woo hoo! Time to do some celebrating.
