  • Category: Bock

A few others I wanted to mention:
  • Fegley’s Brew Works in Allentown – We’ve all seen their brews on our Pittsburgh shelves. Fegley’s walked away with two medals this year – a bronze for their Berliner Weiss and a gold for Arctic Alchemy
  • Columbus Brewing Co. – This small brewery won an impressive two medals – impressive because one was in the most highly competitive category at GABF. The American-Style India Pale Ale category was far and away the most entered with 279 beers, in which they won bronze for their Bodhi. Their second medal was also in one of the most highly competitive categories, Imperial India Pale Ale with 135 entries, in which they won gold for their Creeper.
