Alvarado Street Brewery is pleased to announce that we’ve been awarded two more medals this year, this time at the crowded field at the 2015 California State Fair in Sacramento.
Minesweeper IPA took second place honors in the American IPA category in a field of 141 other entries. Triple Cone, our annually brewed Triple IPA, was awarded second place among 79 entries in the Imperial IPA category. In all, over 1,000 beers were judged at this year's California State Fair, making it one of the largest Commerical Craft Beer competitions on the West Coast.
Earlier in the year, Alvarado Street Brewery was awarded four medals at the Los Angeles International Beer Competition (Gold for Monterey Common and Mai Tai PA, Silver for Minesweeper IPA and Milk Stout) and two medals at the San Diego International Beer Competition (Gold for Smokestack Lightning Smoked IPA, Silver for Alta California Pale Ale). We're hoping to carry this momentum to the 2015 Great American Beer Fest in Denver this fall!
