Great American Beer Festival Gold Medal For Raucher Smoked Lager
After receiving a Bronze Medal from the prestigious World Beer Cup in May of 2016, we were doubly honored to receive a Gold Medal for the same beer from the Great American Beer Festival in October 2016. Raucher Smoked Lager is an exceptionally balanced brew featuring a dry, crackly smoke flavor reminiscent of a campfire. All of this award-winning beer's smoke flavor comes from Beechwood smoked malt -- no liquid smoke or other BS here! Raucher is available on draft (almost) all the time and on select draft lines in beer bars across Southeast Michigan. If you are a bar or restaurant interested in ordering Raucher, please call us at 734-369-2990 and we will connect you with the appropriate distributor.
World beer Cup Bronze Medal for Raucher smoked lager
We were honored to receive a Bronze Medal from the World Beer Cup in 2016 for our smoked lager, Raucher. When crafting a smoked beer of any kind, a balance must be struck between three things: hop bitterness, malty sweetness, and smokiness. Too smoky, and you're drinking a hammy campfire. Too sweet, and the style loses its oomph. Drown it in hops, and you've got another beer entirely. We're a little biased, but Raucher is one of our favorite brews. It's balanced, sweet, and smoky, and it finishes with just a touch of hoppiness on the back of the palate. Drinkable, smooth, and delicious. Available on draft...80% of the time.
Draft magazine names Gulo Gulo India Pale lager one of top 25 beers of 2013
From Draft Magazine:
The sudden rise of the India pale lager—a lager hopped like an IPA— was one of our favorite trends this year, and this superb version floored us. Brewed with five different hops and dry-hopped twice, Gulo Gulo immerses the senses in electrifying honeydew, peach, watermelon and orange before concluding with a classic, refreshing lager snap. This incredible hop profile makes this beer the apex of the burgeoning style and a must-try for IPA devotees.
