This past weekend, CMBC high-tailed it to Denver to participate in the 2019 Great American Beer Festival and the Denver Rare Beer Tasting.
We entered a few beers into the competition this year, and, lo and behold!, Honey Porter came through with a bronze medal in the Brown Porter category! This year, 9,497 entries were submitted to the general competition, along with 113 Pro-Am and 70 Collaboration entries, by 2,295 breweries from across the nation, with entries from all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. There were some sixty other entries in the Brown Porter category, and we really couldn’t be more pleased.
“Honey Porter has long been one of the mainstays of our lineup,” Ryan said. “It’s extraordinarily gratifying that this recipe that began in my bathtub as one of my homebrews almost a decade ago got us our very first medal at GABF.”
Nearly 60,000 people attended GABF this year, and the event was a huge success! Check out the pics below!
