Figurehead Brewing wins top award at Great American Beer Festival

The small-but-mighty Figurehead Brewing next to Fishermen’s Terminal has just clinched gold at a national beer festival.

Figurehead ‘s Midwatch ale won for “Brewing Excellence in Belgian-style Strong Specialty Ale” at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver last weekend. The festival is the largest commercial beer competition in the world, with entries from 2,404 breweries around the country. The competition was judged by an international panel of 293 judges, who selected winners from 8,496 combined entries.

Midwatch is “a traditional Belgian dark strong, with complex notes of dark fruit, fig, and raisin complemented by a fruity and spicy character from the Belgian yeast,” according to the brewery. Figurehead, which specializes in traditional English and Belgian ales, is a seven-barrel brewery and taproom in Magnolia at 4001 21st Ave W.

“It’s an honor and a dream come true to win a gold at GABF in just our second year,” Figurehead owner and head brewer Bob Monroe said.

You sure talk about junkies a lot. It’s like you have some weird, sexual fetish for them.

Whatever gets your rocks off, I guess!

Ooh, the description of that beer sounds like it’s right up my alley. Congratulations, Figurehead! I can’t wait to try it out.

Do you wind up regularly burning through cash to pursue down sources that are, say, just accessible in print books? Do My Homework For Me – Homeworkclock.com. I composed a paper for an understudy once contending why it was great that the ERA change never passed. In the paper, I took the libertarian “state’s rights” position, however I don’t figure it would make a lot of women’s activists pleased…
