The Brewers Association held its bi-annual World Beer Cup Competition last week, and two area breweries emerged with coveted awards.
Manitou Brewing Company pulled down two silver medals: one for its Cerise Mousseux Nouveau (soured with wild lactobacillus plus fermented with wine yeast) in the highly competitive Experimental Beer category, and the other for its High Ground IPA in the Fresh or Wet Hop Ale category.
Red Leg Brewing Company earned a bronze win in the Brown Porter category for its Blue Nose Brown.
Congrats to both outfits.
