HARRISBURG, PA — Tröegs Brewery took home three medals at 2010 Great American Beer Festival Competition (GABF), the largest national beer competition recognizing the most outstanding beers produced in the United States. The winners in the 79 beer-style categories were announced September 18 at the 29th Annual Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado.
Tröegs Brewery won a gold medal in the Barleywine category for The Flying Mouflan, a silver medal in the Bock category for Troegenator and a silver medal in the Amber Ale category for Hopback Amber. The three medals represent the most medals won by a Pennsylvania brewery at this year’s competition.
“This is a proud moment for all our employees,” said Chris Trogner. “Troegenator has medaled four of the last five years at the GABF and that says a lot about our brewers’ dedication for continued success with a single beer. We are thrilled with Hopback Amber’s recognition since it’s our best-selling beer, and The Flying Mouflan grew from our Scratch series to become recognized as an outstanding barleywine.”
This year’s GABF competition attracted 151 beer judgers from 10 countries with 3,523 beers from 516 breweries competing for gold, silver and bronze medals. The average numbers of competition beers entered in each category was 44. More than 49,000 people attended the three-day beer festival with 455 breweries pouring more than 2,200 beers.
