During its eight amazing years in business, Reuben’s Brews has been awarded quite a few brewing awards. This past weekend at the 2020 Great American Beer Festival (GABF), Reuben’s was awarded a Silver and Bronze Medal. This brings its medal count from beer awards to a staggering count of 275 medals, the most of any brewery in the Evergreen State.
Last Friday, Reuben’s took home two of the 16 total medals awarded to breweries in Washington State. This was the fourth most of any state. REUBEN’S CRUSH received a Silver medal in the highly competitive “Juicy or Hazy Strong Pale Ale” category, and FRESH HOP HAZEALICIOUS earned a Bronze medal in the prestigious “Fresh Hop Beer” category. Reuben’s was one of fewer than 30 breweries around the country to win multiple medals!
“We’re chuffed to be recognized this year in two really popular categories”, said Reuben’s Co-Founder Adam Robbings, in a statement. “Our approach is about creating a wide breadth of beer styles that are always balanced and drinkable. And we’ve now won GABF medals in several different categories – from Hazy IPAs and West Coast IPAs to Stouts, Barleywines, and Sours. Awards aren’t the goal, of course, but the awards are nice because they tell us that we’re achieving our high standards and brewing products that will hopefully help people grow their love of beer.”
