Breakside Brewery claimed a Silver Medal for the year-round Pils and a Gold for the flagship IPA at the 2016 Best of Craft Beer Awards held recently in Bend, Oregon. Breakside came out on top amongst the 134 beers entered into the American IPA category. This means Breakside IPA’s have came out on top for two years back-to-back at the Best of Craft Beer Awards with a Gold last year for the other year-round Wanderlust IPA. That means Breakside IPA’s have been a medalist three years in a row (Breakside’s flagship IPA also won a Silver at BoCBA in 2014.)
Between the Best of Craft Beer Awards and another recent win at the Oregon Hophouse’s month-long Oregon Blind IPA Tasting, Breakside IPA is solidified as one of the winningest IPAs on the market today– it is the ONLY IPA to have won gold at 3 of the 4 largest beer competitions in the country (North American Beer Awards 2014, Great American Beer Festival 2014, Best of Craft Beer Awards 2016).
