Four Breweries bring home awards from the recent World Beer Cup held in Chicago, Illinois. Outer Banks, Olde Hickory, Foothills and Duck-Rabbit were among the 268 awards presented. Here are the beers that won for North Carolina:
- Silver: American-Style Imperial Stout: Sexual Chocolate Imperial Stout (Foothills Brewing)
- Silver: Old Ale: Irish Walker (Olde Hickory Brewery)
- Silver: Herb and Spice Beer or Chocolate Beer Lemon Grass Wheat Ale (Outer Banks Brewing Station)
- Gold: Sweet Stout: Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout (Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery Inc.)
Pictured here is Jamie Bartholomaus of Foothills accepting his award from Charlie Papazian. Unfortunately, I didn’t have the reflexes to get pictures of any of the other North Carolina winners.
Congrats to these breweries! Support North Carolina beer!
