Saint Archer Medals at GABF

Denver, CO — Saint Archer Brewing Company is proud to announce their White Ale won the Gold Medal at this year’s Great American Beer Festival (GABF).

Recognized in the popular Belgian-Style Witbier category, with 65 total entries, the White Ale was released in February of this year and has quickly become a fan favorite, even faster than the brewers could have imagined.

“I have always loved this style of beer,” explains Kim Lutz, Head Brewer. “To make ours unique we use whole orange puree and hand-ground coriander to give it some big fruit and spice up front, but it still finishes very dry and crisp, keeping is sessionable… And it’s true to Belgian style.”

GABF, held in Denver, Colorado, and now in its 28th year, is the largest commercial beer competition in the world. Presented by the Brewers Association, GABF recognizes excellence in brewing and gathers almost 50,000 attendees to sample beers from over 1,300 breweries.
