On Friday May 4, the Dillon Dam Brewery won 2 awards at the 2012 World Beer Cup held in San Diego, California. GOLD for the Art of Science Schwarzbier and BRONZE for Sweet George’s Brown Ale. This is the first time the Brewery has won 2 awards at the same time at either the World Beer Cup or the Great American Beer Festival. The Schwarzbier was our Grand Prize Winner at the Dam’s first Homebrewer’s Competition. Part of the prize package was for Art Ballah, the winning homebrewer, to brew his recipe on our 15 barrel system. And obviously he makes good beer. Art has homes in Denver and Frisco. Called the Olympics of Beer, the ninth bi-annual competition boasted the strongest field of entrants on record, with 799 breweries from 54 countries and 45 U.S. states entering 3,921 beers in 95 beer style categories. A 17.7 percent increase over 2010, the entries were eligible for gold, silver and bronze awards in their respective categories. Judges presented a total of 284 awards. Sweet George’s Brown Ale was in the English Style Brown Ale category with 30 competitors, and it is on tap right now. Stop by and have one.
