Glendale, WI – Sprecher Brewing Company won five (5) medals at the 2014 U.S. Open Beer Championship, the only brewery competition to include professional breweries and award-winning home- brewers. With five medals – two gold, two silver and one bronze—Sprecher tied for 4th place among the 272 competing breweries, and was the only Wisconsin brewery in the Top 10.

Judges from England, Canada, Finland and the U.S. announced the winners.
- Irish Stout, Classic Irish Dry Stout

“We’ve done well in competitions this year, and I’m pleased about the recognition we’ve received. With the increase we’ve had production it’s hard to make consistently good beer. However, our brewmaster keeps producing excellent beer, both in quality and taste” said Sprecher CEO and founder Randy Sprecher. “I’d also like to congratulate the other Wisconsin breweries that won awards in this competition. Well deserved.”
