U.S. Open Beer Championship announces 2013 winners
Wisconsin breweries excel in 2500-beer competition;
homebrewers, oldest breweries also medal

Atlanta, GA (July, 2013) - Breweries from around the world sent in more than 2500 beers representing 68 different categories for the 2013 U.S. Open Beer Championship, the only brewery competition to include professional breweries and award-winning home-brewers. Judges from England, Canada and the United States announced the winners this week, noting that “The Dairy State” could earn a new moniker, “The Beer State,” based on how well Wisconsin beers fared in the national event. The oldest brewery in the United States and the oldest brewery in the world also medaled.
Capital Brewery out of Middleton, Wisconsin, was named Grand National Champion, winning three gold, one silver and two bronze medals. Last year’s champion, Sweetwater Brewing out of Atlanta, took second, and one of the nation's oldest breweries, Stevens Point Brewing in Stevens Point Wisconsin, took third.
Last year's gold medal winners at the American Homebrewers Association National Homebrew Competition were invited to compete, and homebrewers won a record 4 medals at the U.S. Open. Gautam Bagchi from Ohio won a silver medal for his Barky Pilsner while Kelsey McNair, Mark Girard and Andrew Mitchell took home bronze medals for their beers.
“This competition is significant because it accepts entries from breweries around the world and allows national, winning homebrews to compete,” said Dow Scoggins, director of the U.S. Open Beer Championships. “We’re excited that one of the oldest craft breweries in the United States won. Capital Brewery was founded in 1984, when only a handful of craft breweries existed in America. i. On the other hand, the oldest brewery in world, Weihenstephaner, founded in 1050, won Gold and Silver Medals in the German Wheat category.

This year, more than 20 international breweries from Canada, Belgium, Germany, Mexico, Columbia, Sweden, Finland and England medaled in the competition.

Other “winners” benefitting from The U.S. Open Beer Championship were the Norcross Fury Soccer Club and Collins Hill High School in the Atlanta area, which received hundreds hundreds of ice packs used to pack and deliver U.S. Open beer entries.

Sponsors of this year’s U.S. Open are The Beer Connoisseur magazine, a leading consumer educator of the beer industry, and BeerInfo.com, the leading craft brewery news website.
