Just last weekend in Dublin 469 beers from 24 countries were judged;
Bach Brewing picked up 3 medals;
Driftwood Session Pale Ale – Silver medal
Kingtide Pacific IPA – Silver medal
Duskrider Red IPA – Bronze medal
Don’t mean to skite but like a proud Dad, in less than 12 months this brings the medal haul for two of our beers as follows;
Kingtide – Silver 2014 NZ Brewers Guild Awards, Gold 2014 New World Beer & Cider Awards, Silver Dublin Craft Beer Cup
Duskrider – Silver 2014 NZ Brewers Guild Awards, Gold 2014 New World Beer & Cider, Trophy Best in Class 2014 New World Beer & Cider Awards, Bronze 2015 Dublin Craft Beer Cup
Our newest beer just released; Driftwood Session Pale Ale at 5% ABV, is an easy drinking and tasty pale ale. Brewed with predominantly Riwaka hops from Nelson, and supported by a couple or American hop stars; Amarillo and Citra, plus a handful of specialty malts from Gladfield Malt on Canterbury plains, NZ.
Available in 500ml bottles and on-tap at selected craft beer venues.
Best in Class has been awarded to the top-scoring entry in each of fourteen classes, distinguishing this as the best example of brewing to the style – 351 beers were entered.
Our Duskrider Red IPA was judged best in class for Specialty Ales. Very proud Dad!
As part of the reward for winning best in class, Duskrider will be ranged in 134 New World stores around New Zealand.
But let’s not forget, our Kingtide also was recognised with a Gold Medal in the IPA/APA class.
