The results are in from this years Spring Beer & Wine Festival. Some of them are a bit hard to conceive, but any old way, the people have spoken, and in a recent press release we received from Lisa “Beer Goddess” Morrison, we discovered that of almost 90 beers were present, which ain’t too shabby for a festival replete with wine quaffers.
The Beer Goddess informed us:
Bend-based Deschutes Brewing, Hawaii’s Kona Brewing and Everett-Wash.-based Lazy Boy Brewing each won two medals in the competition. Kona grabbed two golds – one for Longboard Lager in the Lager category and one for Wailua Wheat in the Wheat category. Deschutes’ Miss Spelt, a German spelt ale, won silver in the broad Other category and its Hop Henge won silver in the IPA/Double IPA category. Lazy Boy won silver in the Belgian category with its Belgian Golden and garnered a second silver medal in the Red/Amber category with its Double Red.
