Newport Daze, our refreshing, fruit forward, day sipper, medaled at the world’s largest and most prestigious beer competition, the 2021 Great American Beer Festival.
Over 17 days 170 judges evaluated 9,680 entries from 2,192 breweries from all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico. To say the competition was steep is an understatement. We are so proud to have earned a silver medal out of 133 entries in the very competitive Juicy/Hazy Pale Ale category.
“Despite being forced to cancel the festival portion of GABF, our brewing community rallied together to make this year’s GABF competition one for the books — our largest competition judged to date,” said Chris Swersey, competition director, Great American Beer Festival. “Judges continue to be impressed with the quality and innovation of all entries they evaluated. The Brewer’s Association is proud to honor this year’s deserving winners.”
“We are thrilled with this win,” says Hagen Moore, VP of Marketing and Creative. “A huge shoutout to our amazing brewers and entire team for all of the hard work behind the scenes, and congratulations to all the other winners - we are honored to share the podium with such good company and be part of this innovative and thriving industry.”
