Grayton Beer Company Bags Silver at World’s Largest Beer Competition

Grayton Beer Company was awarded a silver medal at the 2019 Great American Beer Festival, the world’s largest commercial beer competition.

The festival, presented by the Brewers Association, recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States.

Gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded on October 5 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, in 107 beer categories covering 174 different beer styles, establishing the best examples of each style in the country.

Grayton Beer Company was recognized in the American-Style Amber Ale/Red Ale beer-style category for its 1890 Founder’s Ale.

This copper-colored ale combines a rich malt character featuring flavors of caramel, toffee and roasted walnuts with American Cascade hops. A perfect union, this full-bodied beer has a bright, lively pine finish. The roasted notes in this beer play well with grilled, smoked, or braised meats. A great dessert beer that will go well with apple pie, cobbler and other fall classics.
