Local brewery awarded another medal

Local brewery awarded another medal

Cedar Springs Brewing Company is kicking off 2020 with another International beer style receiving recognition. Küsterer Original Weissbier was awarded a silver medal in the “German Style Wheat Beer” category at the Best of Craft Beer Awards, which took place February 7-9 at Mt. Bachelor Village Resort in Bend, Oregon. 

According to the brewery, this legendary alchemy was brewed exclusively by Bavarian kings for nearly three centuries. “Fermented with our special yeast strain in our classic open vessels, this traditional wheat beer is deep auburn in color with a cloudy appearance, a rich body accented by hints of almond and nuts and a refreshing finish. This Original version of “hefeweizen” is still brewed by a handful of small, independent breweries in Bavaria—such as ours—and is perfect to be enjoyed year-round.”

In the state of Michigan only 4 breweries came away with medals: Cedar Springs Brewing Company, North Peak Brewing Company, Jolly Pumpkin Artisan Ales and Third Monk Brewing Company.

During the weekend of February 7-9th, professional brewers and judges descended upon the picturesque beer/ski town of Bend, Oregon to judge over 2,200 entries into the 2020 Best of Craft Beer Awards competition. Breweries of all sizes sent over 11,000 containers of their finest product for evaluation based on a combined 147 specific beer styles. Judging took place during five sessions over a 3-day period by 100 of the most qualified national judges.

They awarded 285 gold, silver, and bronze medals to 375 brewery locations around the world.
