Ghostfish Brewing Wins 3 Medals at the 2016 U.S. Open Beer Championship
Seattle, WA – The sound of heavy metal can be heard within the walls of the Ghostfish Brewery and we’re not talking about screeching guitars and booming drums. We’re talking about gold, silver and bronze medals! Ghostfish Brewing Company recently learned that three of their beers received medals at the 2016 U.S. Open Beer Championship within the Gluten-Free Beer category.
Ghostfish Grapefruit IPA received the prestigious gold medal; Kai Dog Red IPA was awarded the silver medal and the 1st Anniversary Russian Imperial Stout won the bronze medal.
“Sweeping the gluten-free beer category feels really good,” stated co-owner and Director of Sales & Marketing Brian Thiel. “We aim to produce the highest quality beers utilizing the best gluten-free ingredients. These awards mean as much to our organization as they do to the suppliers of our gluten- free malted grains. They allow us to continue pushing the boundaries of beer!”
Grapefruit IPA is a year-round offering from Ghostfish and is available in draft and 12oz cans. Kai Dog Red IPA is the brewery’s first seasonal packaged beer available in draft and 22oz bottles. The 1st Anniversary Russian Imperial Stout is a beer that was released to commemorate the brewery’s successful first year of business. This limited release packaged beer is available in 22oz bottles.
“There’s nothing easy about making beer the way we do,” said Brewmaster & co-owner Jason Yerger. “A huge victory like this is proof positive that the hard work we put in is absolutely worth it.”
