Seventeen medals, including seven gold were brought home by local brewers this weekend from the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. Earth Bread + Brewery, Fegley’s Brew Works, Flying Fish, Sly Fox, Tröegs and Victory each were among the gold medal winners. Also a winner in its first year of existence, Barren Hill Tavern and Brewery.
Iron Hill also had a strong showing with three medals including two from its Media, PA location.
Saturday, September 20th from noon until 5 p.m. a continuous bus loop will connect three of Philadelphia’s most talented brewers; Paul Rutherford of Iron Hill Brewery Chestnut Hill, Scott Morrison of Barren Hill Tavern & Brewery, and Tom Baker of Earth Bread & Brewery. The crawl will supply attendees with three one-of-a-kind brews made especially for the occasion. The brewers have come together to brew specialty collaboration beers at each brewery.
The Germantown Avenue Cartel Crawl costs $20 (tickets are on sale at all ofthe brewpubs) and each patron will receive a ticket to take with them to each stop where bartenders then stamp tickets for their allotted 12 ounce pour. Attendees may purchase additional Cartel beers at a discounted price, enjoy other in-house beers, and have access to each brewpub all day. The brewers will also be on site at each location to answer questions and provide insight into their brewing experiences.
