RBC wins two medals at national competition
Resurgence Brewing Company took home two bronze medals from the 2017 Best of Craft Beer Awards competition, held this week in Bend, Ore. Ice Boom Bock and Cucumber Saison were both honored, in the bock and field beer categories, respectively. We were one of 145 breweries who achieved medals in 84 award categories.
“I’m honored to have our beers recognized by a national panel and to see how we rank alongside beers from breweries across the country,” said owner Jeff Ware. “It’s a great experience for us to see how we’re doing on a broader scale, and we’re excited to share our beers with a wider audience. Competitions like these are a great opportunity to get an objective analysis of our beer, and it’s a great feeling to know they stack up well not only in Western New York, but nationally, as well.”
Beers were judged by 88 Beer Judge Certification Program judges, the industry standard that certifies individuals to rank and provide feedback on beer. According to the Best of Craft Beer Awards, breweries in 35 states sent beer to be evaluated, resulting in 245 medals to 145 winning breweries.
Ice Boom Bock is on tap at our Niagara Street taproom right now, and Cucumber Saison will be back in several weeks to kick off the spring season. Both beers will also be available throughout the Western New York area, in bars and restaurants where RBC beer is sold. Our brewery has been located on Niagara Street since 2014, and we now distribute our product throughout Western New York in cooperation with Try-It and Sanzo Beverage distributors. Our brewery features between 12-15 beers on tap at any given time, and our signature IPA and Blood Orange Saison is available in cans at local grocery and beer retailers. Stop in to try us out today!
