GREENSBORO — Gibb’s Hundred Brewing claimed a gold medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition. Presented by the Brewers Association, GABF is the largest national beer competition that recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States. The top three winners in the competition’s 92 beer categories were announced September 26 at the Great American Beer Festival awards ceremony held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.
Gibb’s Hundred Brewing was recognized in the Extra Special Bitter beer-style category for The Guilty Party, a deep amber, malty brew with notes of caramel, nuttiness and biscuit. Gibb’s Hundred Brewing was founded a year ago in Greensboro, NC. The brewery will be celebrating its anniversary on October 17th with a street festival featuring live music, food trucks, eleven Gibb’s beers on tap, and a new release of a special Barleywine.
“We put our heart and soul into every beer — not just the sexy IPAs and Belgian Tripels,” said Mark Gibb, co-founder with Sasha Gibb. “This win really showcases an underrated beer style, and validates the tremendous talent and hard work of our brewers John Priest and William Brown.”
The 2015 GABF competition winners were selected by an international panel of 242 expert judges from the record number of 6,647 entries received from 1,552 U.S. breweries.
