At the weekend we had some amazing news come in over the wires from Colorado, as the 36th annual Great American Beer Festival awards were announced. Our grapefruit IPA Elvis Juice was amongst the winners, coming home – to Ohio – with a medal! We reckon this is the first time ever a primarily UK-based business has won an award at the GABF, the industry-standard contest for beer quality in the US.

It’s incredible news, and truly awesome for our hard-working team in Columbus who made it happen!

The people of Ohio have been learning about our US-brewed beers for months so we love the fact that at this early stage in our American adventures, the judges of the most prestigious contest in the country have agreed with them and given Elvis Juice a medal.

The GABF Awards sees thousands of US-brewed craft beers go up against each other in 96 different style categories, with the judging process alone taking three days to complete. The competition is fierce; Elvis Juice came out a winner in a category of 145 entrants!

Thanks to the GABF judges for the award, but all the thanks have to go to our US brewteam in Columbus. To install, develop and key in our Ohio brewhouse to the stage where it produces award-winning beers after only a few months is awesome. Without everyone in Columbus working in such an amazing way together, we wouldn’t have achieved this. You guys rock.

So who’s having an Elvis Juice tonight in celebration?

I shared some with friends over a fire last weekend. To my surprise one of my long time drinking buddies who only drinks Miller Lite religiously. When on and on about how he likes grapefruit and that was the best thing he had ever tasted. I got him his own six pack for this weekends gathering.

Al - We are working hard to distribute into other States and definitely have Detroit on our radar. We'll hopefully have news for you guys in Michigan and other Ohio neighbours soon!

200 miles North of Columbus is one of the largest metro areas in the country, Detroit. How soon might we see BrewDog distributing up this way? I so enjoy my stash of Elvis Juice, imported by my Ohio based son. I'd like to share the great taste of the champion of craft beer with all our craft beer loving friends and family.
