Full Sail Lagers Sweep the World Beer Championships

Every Lager Crafted by Full Sail Brewing Company Wins Gold or Silver Medals at the 2013 World Beer Championships

Hood River, Oregon – Seven gold and four silver medals from the World Beer Championships have just been added to Full Sail Brewing’s impressive list of awards and accolades. Every single lager crafted by Full Sail has earned gold or silver medals at this year’s competition.

“This is such an extraordinary accomplishment. The sophistication and complexity of lager beers highlight a brewer’s skill and passion for quality. To bring home a medal for every single one of our lagers is testament to the craftsmanship that comes with our 26 years of brewing. Balance and elegance are our defining brewery characteristics and we’re thrilled to once again earn the highest awards for our beers,” said Jamie Emmerson, Full Sail’s Executive Brewmaster. “We don’t brew our beers to win medals, but we’re honored when we do. Our customers are the ultimate judges and we strive to consistently brew all our beers with them in mind. This is further validation of renowned beer writer John Foyston’s declaration that Full Sail is ‘Oregon’s biggest, best lager brewery.’ Thanks to all our beer fans and friends for your ongoing support,” Emmerson added.
