SunUp Brewing Company Wins Bronze Medal at the 2019 Great American Beer Festival®

White Russian Imperial Coffee Stout recognized for brewing excellence at world’s largest commercial beer competition

Phoenix, Arizona • October 5, 2019 — SunUp Brewing Company was awarded a bronze medal at the 2019 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition, the world’s largest commercial beer competition. The GABF, presented by the Brewers Association, recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States. Gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded on October 5 at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, in 107 beer categories covering 174 different beer styles (including all subcategories), establishing the best examples of each style in the country.

SunUp Brewing Company was recognized in the Coffee Stout or Porter beer-style category for its White Russian Imperial Coffee Stout, a beer with huge coffee, bittersweet chocolate, dark caramel, roasted grain, vanilla, sweet cream & dark fruits, like plum, raisin & prunes. The flavor is a huge burst of rich coffee & cream and dark unsweetened chocolate. The fruitiness from the dark roasted malts brings in the flavors of stone fruits & creates a full almost chewy mouthfeel and plenty of body. The big alcohol of this brew creates nice alcohol warmth. Along with being a dessert all by itself, White Russian will pair well with big flavored foods like duck, venison, wild turkey, goose, aged cheeses like Gouda, Parmesan or sharp cheddar. If dessert is more to your liking, pair with dark chocolate truffles, chocolate cheesecake, chocolate raspberry mousse cake or a double chocolate chip cookie.

In the 33rd edition of the GABF competition, 9,497 entries were submitted to the general competition, along with 113 Pro-Am and 70 Collaboration entries. The beer was made by 2,295 breweries from across the nation, with entries from all 50 states plus Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. Judging took place over the course of three days, with an international panel of 322 judges from 18 countries.

“This year’s GABF competition was the largest and most competitive to date,” said Chris Swersey, competition manager, Great American Beer Festival. “The beers and talent were as impressive as ever, and I’m thrilled to congratulate this year’s winners for their achievements in brewing.”
