Blackberry Farm Brewery Wins 2016 Great American Beer Festival Award

The Blackberry Farm Brewery team was honored to win a Silver Medal at the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) recently for its Barrel Series Brett Saison in the category of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer.The Brett Saison is a golden farmhouse ale fermented with brettanomyces and aged in French oak red wine barrels. “Our guys bring so much passion and dedication to their work every day, it's an honor to call them friends and teammates,” said Chief Fermentation Officer Roy Milner. “We started our barrel program one year ago, and Brett Saison was our very first release. To bring another Silver Medal home from such a respected gathering of industry peers is humbling to say the least.”This is the second year that the brewery has entered the festival and it is the second silver medal received. The GABF received 7,227 entries this year, nearly a thousand more than last year. The GABF is the premier U.S. beer festival and competition that brings together breweries and diverse beer enthusiasts. “It’s always wonderful being able to visit with friends while at GABF, and to have our young barrel program receive this recognition for its first release was truly exciting.” said Brewmaster Daniel Heisler. The Blackberry Farm Brewery was also honored this year with a Beer World Cup Gold Medal for its Classic Saison.
