We are happy to announce that our Boundary Bay Brewery Pilsner has advanced to the 2nd round of the Brewing News Global Warming Open – a contest to find the most refreshing beer in America. Beers were accepted by any brewery choosing to enter the competition and participating breweries were placed randomly into the competition brackets. Judges are choosing the winning beer on a single elimination basis and winners of the each round advance to the next round.
Best of all…the judges, all craft beer connoisseurs, will sample the beer in summer conditions…meaning, they will be sitting in a hot tub while making their determinations! Before the contest, beer lovers also chose their winners for each round on-line and filled out their brackets. A grand prize will be awarded to the person who gains the most bracket points…with the top prize will be a free case of the winning beer. Not a bad contest, huh? Judges get to sit in hot tubs and drink beer while beer lovers online compete for a case of the most refreshing beer in America!
In the first round, our Pilsner beat out D-Light Kolsch from Atwater Brewing and now we’re pitted against Brute from Ithaca Beer Company. The next elimination round takes place June 27th in Rochester, NY. Keep checking the blog for contest updates!
