So I’m finishing work tonight and my friend says, “meet me at the Brewhouse.” I tasted a flight of three and ordered the dopplebock. The drink coaster just made it too easy for me.

St. Paul Beer Fail

Great American Beer Festival Awards Winners 2015

Don’t get me wrong, I love St Paul, but it appears as though the judges have spoken.

From the Great American Beer Festival, Duluth takes two awards!

To me, it’s gotta be extra special bitter. (How often can a drink coaster be mightier than the billboard)?

  • Silver – Double Porter | Bemidji Brewing Co., Bemidji (Baltic-style porter)
  • Bronze – Lonely Blonde | Fulton Beer, Minneapolis (English-style summer ale)
  • Silver – 14° ESB | Bent Paddle Brewing Co., Duluth (extra special bitter)
  • Silver – Procrastinator Doppelbock | Fitger’s Brewhouse, Duluth (German-style doppelbock or eisbock)
  • Silver – Pumpkin Grinder | Mankato Brewery, Mankato (pumpkin)

Very compelling Herzog, you may have won here but this isn't over yet . . .
When I send it to Terry, I'll let know you send your regards.

For those of you keeping score at home, this is the third Great American Beer Festival award for the Brewhouse and second for Bent Paddle.

Bent Paddle won a bronze in 2014 in the ESB category for 14°, while the Brewhouse won a bronze in the American-style sour ale category in 2012 for Fitger’s Framboise and another bronze in the French- and Belgian-style saison category in 2004 for its Farm House Reserve.
