GABF Awards for Beers We Serve Here.

Apparently the judges at the Great American Beer Festival, the biggest beer festival/awards ceremony in America, like a lot of the beers we have on tap. Here's a short list of beers we regularly serve here that won much-coveted GABF awards last week. Flying Dog, in addition to the beer awards you'll see below, won Mid-Size Brewing Company and Mid-Size Brewing Company Brewer of the Year! As you might expect, we'll continue to have their great stuff on tap.

I loved the Brooklyner-Schneider when it was on tap - any chances it'll be up again? (and how long do you think the He'Brew will last?)

The Brooklyner-Schneider, unfortunately, was kind of a one-time beer--I'm not sure there's much of it left anywhere, but if we ever see it again, we'll grab it. The He'Brew should be around for a bit, and we'll keep ordering it as long as it's in stock.

Seems like it's about time to bring back Rogue's award-winning Mocha Porter too...

As a side note: I'm in Colorado now, so if there's anything in bottle you'd like brought back, perhaps we can work something out.

J-C. G. Rauschenberg said...

Apparently, we're thinking alike, Ben. Before I saw your comment, Jon and I ordered Mocha Porter for Thursday.

Don't need anything from Colorado currently, but thanks for the offer!
