Tröegs Brewing Co. was the local star brewer at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival awards this weekend. The brewery brought home three golds (Hopback Amber, Dreamweaver Wheat and Sunshine Pils) plus the award for Mid-Size Brewery of the Year.
Local brewers did better than ever at the Great American Beer Festival last week and they did it with in lagers, harking back to the region’s brewing roots.
The fourteen medals won by Philly-area brewers last weekend at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver was the best showing ever for the locals. More than that, it was a tribute to some of the region’s classics.
Often, the awards go to fairly obscure brewpub varieties that are brewed especially for the competition. While those beers show off a brewer’s talents, you’d be hard-pressed to find them on tap.
This year, though, some old names – names that you might’ve forgotten about in the pursuit of the next new thing – brought home the hardware.
