Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 09, 2014
Finch’s Beer Company’s Secret Stache Stout is the gold medal winner in the Stout category at this year’s World Expo of Beer, Michigan’s largest international beer sampling event, which took place May 16th and 17th this year.
Stout was one of the largest categories with 33 entries this year. Winning silver was Frankenmuth’s Imperial Stout; Mountain Town’s Steam Engine took bronze.
Secret Stache Stout has also won a silver medal in the Cream Stout category at the United States Open Beer Championship, announced in Atlanta on July 4, 2014. This victory comes on the heels of Secret Stache Stout’s gold medal win at the World Expo of Beer in May.
The highly-rated Secret Stache Stout first made an appearance as a specialty beer in early 2012 before being added to Finch’s full-time portfolio in November. This robust stout is brewed with vanilla bean and chocolate malts, resulting in a lightly-carbonated and complex flavor.
Taking first place in the stout category was Florida’s Cigar City Brewpub with their Cigar City Brunch. Motorworks Brewing’s Sweet Stout won bronze in this category. The U.S. Open of Beer Championship featured over 3,000 beers from around the world and 81 different categories. Judges from the United States, Finland, England and Canada decided the results.
