Resurgence Brewing Company took home a pair of bronze medals from the 2017 Best of Craft Beer Awards competition, held this week in Bend, Oregon.
Ice Boom Bock and Cucumber Saison were both honored, in the Bock and Field Beer categories respectively. Resurgence was one of 145 breweries who achieved medals in 84 award categories.
“I’m honored to have our beers recognized by a national panel and to see how we rank
alongside beers from breweries across the country,” said owner Jeff Ware. “It’s a great
experience for us to see how we’re doing on a broader scale, and we’re excited to share
our beers with a wider audience. Competitions like these are a great opportunity to get
an objective analysis of our beer, and it’s a great feeling to know they stack up well not
only in Western New York, but nationally, as well.”
Beers were judged by 88 Beer Judge Certification Program judges, the industry
standard that certifies individuals to rank and provide feedback on beer. According to
the Best of Craft Beer Awards, breweries in 35 states sent beer to be evaluated,
resulting in 245 medals to 145 winning breweries.
Ice Boom Bock is on tap at RBC’s Niagara Street taproom right now, and Cucumber
Saison will be back in several weeks to kick off the spring season. Both beers will also
be available throughout the Western New York area, in bars and restaurants where
RBC beer is sold.
The good news coincides with the release of the brewery’s Peter B. Porter, making its rounds for another. The beer description reads “balanced doses of chocolate, cocoa and toasted peanut butter…try it with some toast and jam and get yourself a real grown-up blast to the past!” Find it on tap now.
