Grand National Champion Named by U.S. Open Beer Competition

Nearly 4,000 beers from Around the World Competed

Breweries from China to the Czech Republic sent in almost 4,000 beers and ciders representing 90 different styles for the 2015 U.S. Open Beer Championship. This competition includes professional breweries and award-winning home-brewers. Judges from England, Canada and the U.S. recently announced the winners. The full winner’s list can be found at U.S. Open Winners List.
Editor’s Note:  I would be glad to personally review any beer sent to us in 6 pack or more quantity.  Contact Eastside Business Free Press Release site here.

More than 20 international breweries from Australia, China, Venezuela, Canada, Belgium, Germany, Mexico,  Sweden, Finland, Scotland and England competed.
Ballast Point Brewing in San Diego, California  was named Grand National Champion by winning  three gold medals and one silver medal.  Their three beers that were awarded gold medals were Ballast Point Pale Ale, Calico Amber Ale and Sculpin IPA.
Lakewood Brewing from Garland, Texas place second while Revelry Brewing of Charleston, South Carolina took home third.
Judging in the U.S. Open Beer Championships is blind; the judges do not know what beers they are tasting.
Gold medal winners from last year’s American Homebrewers Association’s National Homebrew Competition also competed. Homebrewer Scott Hinson took home a silver medal for his YYY’s Man Says in the German Wheat Category while Jeff Carlson grabbed the bronze medal for his Westside Sweet Heat spiced cider.
“It’s amazing what brewers will do to enter the U.S. Open. In the past, brewers have personally delivered their craft beers from Columbia and Brazil. This year, Joshua Deitner from Shanghai Brewery in China traveled 7,263 miles to deliver his beers personally,” said Dow Scoggins, Director of the U.S. Open. He added that the effort paid off: Shanghai Brewery’s Imperial American Brown Ale was awarded a silver medal.
In addition to craft beer, hundreds of ciders were sent to the U.S. Open. This was the second year that the U.S. Open has judged ciders.  2 Towns Ciderhouse from Corvallis, Oregon was name Cidery of the Year. The cider judges wanted to commend Appalachian Brewery and Cidery for their creativity and imagination. Unfortunately, most of their ciders were entered in the same category and only took home 1 medal.
Other “winners” from The U.S. Open Beer Championship are the Oxford and Cincinnati Soccer Clubs and YMCA Camp – Campell Gard, which benefited through the donation of hundreds of ice packs used to pack and deliver U.S. Open Beer entries. The U.S. Open also puts on the “Beer Academy” in Oxford, Ohio. All proceeds go the the Oxford Community Art Center.
