Congratulations are in order for AJ Stoll, the Dietenhofers and everbody over at Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company. The Buellton Brewery and its Santa Barbara sister facility left this weekend’s Great American Beer Festival with five medals.
The Buellton brewery took golds for Davy Brown Ale and Stagecoach Stout, with Surfliner Lager, Oktoberfest and Stearn’s Stout, all brewed in Santa Barbara winning silver.
Devil’s Backbone Brewing Company’s Basecamp location (as opposed to the “Outpost” location) took the award for Small Brewery of the year with one gold, two silvers and two bronzes. The Outpost location also earned a silver medal.
Telegraph walked away with some bronze hardware for its California Ale. This was the second time Telegraph has won a medal for California Ale, which took gold int he Belgian- and French-style Ale Category in 2011.
Last, but far from least, Firestone-Walker and brewmaster Matt Brynildson were once again recognized as the best Midsized Brewery and Brewer. This honor came along with three gold medals for Pivo Pils, Taproom IPA and Wookey Jack. Union Jack was awarded a silver medal.
