SEATTLE, WA. — This weekend Reuben’s Brews was named Mid-Sized Brewery of the Year at the 2015 Washington Beer Awards. Out of over 700 entries, Reuben’s won Gold Medals for their Foreign Export Stout, Robust Porter, and Black Imperial IPA, and Silver Medals for their Cream Ale and Marzen – the first lager the brewery has ever brewed.
“We are honored to be recognized amongst the great breweries of Washington State,” said Adam Robbings, Co-founder and Head Brewer of Reuben’s Brews. “It’s particularly exciting is that we won medals for a wide variety of different beer styles – hoppy, malty, light and dark beers!”
This was the state’s third Washington Beer Awards, a professional beer competition open to all of Washington’s breweries. This year’s competition drew 716 entries from more than 100 breweries across the state.
“With our new production brewery up and running, we’re working as hard as possible to continue to get better,” added Robbings. “Not only do we have more beer available now with our 15-barrel brewery online, we’re brewing even more styles. We have a number of lagers coming, our first sours are scheduled to be tapped over the next few months, and we’re expanding our barrel program – we filled bourbon barrels with our Imperial Stout only last week!”
Reuben’s Brews is available in draft and 22oz bottles through Click Wholesale Distribution in King, Pierce, Kitsap, and Snohomish counties in Western Washington. Their taproom at 5010 14th Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107 is now open 7 days a week.
