Indeed Brewing Company is thrilled to announce its silver medal win at this past weekend’s Great American Beer Festival (GABF) in Denver, Colorado!
We are honored to have been awarded the silver medal in the Specialty Honey Beer category for our Mexican Honey, an Imperial Lager brewed with Mexican orange blossom honey and Amarillo hops. Offering a citrus and floral fiesta for your palate, you can expect notes of orange nectar, graham cracker, biscuits, and honeycomb from this refreshing and dangerously smooth brew. Present to receive the award in Denver were brewery Co-Owner & Co-Founder Tom Whisenand and Lead Brewer Matt Pollock. It is the first GABF medal for us, since opening in August of 2012!
With 268 medals awarded in 90 beer categories covering 145 different beer styles to brewers across the country, GABF, now in its 28th year, is the largest commercial brewing competition on the world, and a true arbiter of brewing excellence. We would like to congratulate all of the other medal winners, especially those winners in the Specialty Honey Beer category: Wicked Weed Brewing Funkatorium, with a gold medal for their Mampara beer, and Blue Moon Brewing Company, with a bronze for their Honey Grand Cru. Indeed Brewing Company is one of six Minnesota breweries to be awarded medals this year. A complete list of all the winners can be found here.
To celebrate the GABF silver medal, we will be tapping a cellared keg of Mexican Honey in the taproom on Thursday, October 9th at 5pm. Bottles of Mexican Honey will also be available for sale in limited quantities.
