Bronze medal winner at 2018 US Open Beer Championship
We never intended for this beer to win any medals. Not because it is not a great beer, but because we did not brew this according to the traditional style criteria. The 1347 is a classic IPA with a West-Coast citrus twist that makes it very delicious, but doesn’t really fit the old-fashioned rules required to win a medal. Regardless, this beer cut through all the noise and won the bronze medal at the 2018 US Open Beer Championship.
