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 N 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.
