Flix Brewhouse, the world’s only first-run cinema microbrewery, won a gold medal for its specialty Kill Shot ale at the recent World Beer Championships category competition held in Chicago. Kill Shot is a full-bodied Scotch ale featuring aromas of toffee, apple, peach and roasted chestnuts. The brewer also was awarded two bronze medals for its well-regarded Lupulus IPA and best-selling 10 Day Scottish Ale.
Flix Brewhouse® is both an emerging national craft brewer and a cutting edge cinema eatery that serves upscale nouvelle pub cuisine while guests enjoy the best entertainment Hollywood offers. Head Brewer Justin Rizza keeps six core beers on tap and regularly creates numerous specialty and seasonal beers.
“We are extremely proud of the success of our carefully crafted beers and always honor the acknowledgement of quality by our peers and our judges. To win three awards synchronously is really tremendous! This just stokes the passion with which we bring to the brewhouse every day,” said Rizza.
Flix Brewhouse® is based in Round Rock, Texas and will be opening new state-of-the-art cinema eateries in Des Moines, Iowa and Carmel, Indiana in fall 2014 and spring 2015, with plans to expand to at least 15 units over the next several years.

Founded in 1994 by the Beverage Testing Institute, the World Beer Championships is the oldest blind tasting competition in America and is open to all commercial brewers worldwide. Unlike other events lasting just a few days, this competition takes place over several months and judges taste only 30 beers per day, submitted by highly respected brewers from around the world including the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia and the United States. The methodology suggests that the results from the World Beer Championships are much more consistent and meaningful to consumers than the results from other competitions.
