(Carpinteria, CA) -- Island Brewing Company posted six medals at the LA International Beer Competition, judged April 18-19. A panel of certified beer judges critiqued hundreds of beers from the US and abroad in a blind-taste format covering 89 beer styles. Beers were judged against others of similar styles as defined by the Brewer's Association Style Guidelines.
Island Brewing Company earned a Gold Medal in the German-style Kolsch, and a Gold Medal in the Imperial India Pale Ale for the King Tide. Three Silver Medals went to the brewery's Starry Night Stout for the Foreign-style Stout category, as well as for the Barrel Aged Jubilee in the Wood and Barrel Aged category, and for the Big Island in the Barleywine category. A Bronze Medal went to the Variance Belgian IPA in the American-Belgo category.
"It's great to see the hard work and focus in the cellar paying off," said head brewer Ryan Morrill We have a great, passionate team and it shows in our beer. It's an exciting time for craft beer--there's more breweries and great beer out there than ever before.
