14 Oct Copperpoint Brewing, Big Bear Brewing Take ‘Best Of’ in Beer Tasting Championship
The United States Beer Tasting Championship, an organization that seeks to find well-made beers through a multi-tiered blind tasting process, recently completed their Summer episode of its annual tasting competition, now in its 21st year. A total of 655 beers from 162 breweries were examined across 16 different beer categories.
For this session, two South Florida breweries succeeded in securing ‘Best of’ places in style categories, meaning that judges determined that these beers were the best of their style in the region. Copperpoint Brewing Company (151 Commerce Rd., Boynton Beach) won big with their Witless (Belgian Wit) and Das Pils (Pilsner) beers, while Big Bear Brewing Company (1800 N. University Dr., Coral Springs) made the best IPA in the region with their Hibernating IPA.
“It’s good to see Florida breweries getting recognition,” Copperpoint’s owner and head brewer Matthew Cox said. “There are some really good beers coming out of Florida breweries. As we continue to grow here at Copperpoint we will make some very minor tweaks to some of the beers, but overall I am very happy with what we are producing. The beers that we sent out were all solid beers.”
