OMMEGANG TAKES BRONZE IN BEER FESTIVAL
Brewery Ommegang took home a bronze medal at the Great American Beer Festival, held in Denver, Colo., from Oct. 10 through 12. According to a media release, the festival includes one of the pre-eminent beer competitions in the nation.
Ommegang’s award, in the Belgian Style Abbey Ale category, was for its Three Philosophers beer.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo hailed Ommegang and six other New York breweries that won medals at the festival in a media release this week, noting that “New York is quickly becoming the craft beer capital of the country.”
Paul Leone, executive director of the New York State Brewers Association said, “The Great American Beer Festival is a world class festival celebrating the best craft beer in the United States. This year, New York beer companies large and small took home seven medals, further demonstrating the quality of beer being brewed in this state.”
