Lewis and Clark Brewing Co. Wins Big at Garden City Brewfest

Competition was tough with an ensemble of 68 varieties, but Back Country Scottish Ale from Lewis and Clark Brewing Company swept three categories and achieved The Best of Show at the 22nd Annual Garden City BrewFest.

Bayern Brewing also had a strong showing with Schwarzbier and Dump Truck winning their categories. Competition was tough and many varieties sold out. Never before has BrewFest hosted such a large variety of brews.

Congratulations to the winners and big thanks to the brewers for providing good competition for the Downtown community to enjoy. Thanks also to The Zoo City Zymurgists for providing their discerning palettes.
