A Favorite Beer Wins Gold in Germany
Firestone Walker's Double Jack IPA, one of my absolute favorite IPAs, won the “Consumer Favourite Gold” for top honors at the European Beer Star competition held in Nuremberg, Germany. The Consumer Favorite (different spelling for American readers) is chosen by event attendees from the top 50 Gold Medal winners, choosing the top three (Gold, Silver, Bronze) for medals. So FW actually won a Gold for the Double Jack, plus this award... a double win!!
It's currently on tap at TAPS in Petaluma (or was as of Friday night) so I'll have a chance to have it again fresh from the keg.
