Weyermann® customers win at the Great American Beer Festival 2017
Congratulations to all winners, especially our Weyermann® customers, who were able to take home one or more medals at this year’s beer competition of the Great American Beer Festival (GABF).
This year the lucky winners were chosen out of 7,923 competition entries from 2,217 breweries.
The competition took place in six sessions over a period of three days and was judged by 276 beer experts, among them also Denise Jones, from 13 countries (including the U.S.). In a ceremony at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, award-winning breweries received prestigious gold, silver and bronze medals in 98 beer categories covering 161 different beer styles (including all subcategories), establishing the best examples of each style in the country.
Among the lucky winners were of course numerous Weyermann® customers, such as Fat Head´s Brewery, Second Chance Beer Co., Silver City Brewery, Chuckanut Brewery and Saint Arnold Brewing.
All Weyermann® customers, whose beers were brewed with more than 50% Weyermann®, receive a popular Weyermann® jumpsuit! Owning a red Weyermann® jumpsuit has become a mark of achievement in the industry and our customers happily wear them when brewing beer – to remember the success at the GABF and also of course because they look awesome in it!
Many thanks go to Weyermann® brewmaster and master distiller Denise Jones, for being such a wonderful Weyermann® ambassador!
