North Idaho breweries pick up medals for beers | News
Idaho is brewing some fine beer according to recent results from the annual North American Brewers Association competition. It’s a blind sampling ranking beers from the most commercial of breweries to the microbreweries that you might not be able to taste just anywhere.
Two Idaho breweries came home from this year’s Beer Awards held last week. Mick Duff’s Brewing Company in Sandpoint, Idaho landed a gold for their Tipsy Toehead, a light ale, and a silver for their English-style I.P.A., the Strom Hammer.
The Silver Valley’s Wallace Brewing Company picked up a bronze for their Red Light, an Irish-Style Red Ale. What a neat name for a beer especially because of the town’s history and tourist attraction, the Oasis Bordello Museum. It makes sense their beer’s tagline is “beer of historic proportion”.
In case you're curious who won the gold for your preferred beer style, the list of winners is online. They competition judged pretty much every style of beer from hefeweizens, dry stouts to dunkelweizens.
