Fuzztail Hefe Beats 6,600 Brews
Sunriver Brewing Company won a Gold medal at the 2016 World Beer Cup℠ for Fuzztail Hefeweizen in the American-Style Wheat Beer with Yeast category. The World Beer Cup is “the most prestigious beer competition in the world.” The 2016 World Beer Cup℠ was one of the largest commercial beer competitions to date. Nearly 6,600 entries from 55 countries vied for brewing glory at the “Olympics” of Beer.
The Brewers Association, dedicated to promoting and protecting America’s small and independent craft brewers, announced the results. The awards were presented at the conclusion of Craft Brewers Conference & Brew Expo America® in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
“Fuzztail Hefeweizen has been on a long journey of refinement the last two years and this award is the end result of a lot of hard work. The brewing team couldn’t be happier to have Fuzz competing and winning at this level,” says Head Brewer, Brett Thomas.
Fuzztail also earned a gold medal at the 2016 Best of Craft Beer awards.
“We are ecstatic to have won with Fuzztail. It’s been a staff favorite for quite some time and we now have the validation of professional beer judges from all over the world,” says Ryan Duley, Director of Sales and Marketing.
