I'm proud and elated to announce that Devils Backbone really cleaned up at this years GABF winning a total of eight medals and the 2012 Champion Small Brewpub & Brewmaster Award!! The take was two golds, two silvers, and four bronzes. DB Basecamp won Gold for "BerlinerTechno Weiss" in the German-style Sour Beer category, Silver for "Danzig" (the third major medal for that beer!) in the Baltic-style Porter category, Silver for "Old Virginia Dark" in the American-style Dark Lager category, Bronze for "Ramsey's Draft Stout" in Irish-style dry stout category, and a Bronze for "Ramsey's Foreign Export" in the Foreign-style Export stout category. DB Outpost won three medals with a Gold for "Vienna Lager" in the Vienna-style Lager category (second back to back golds for that beer and third overall!), Bronze for "Turbo Cougar" in the German-style Bock category, and a Bronze for "Gold Leaf Lager" in the International Pilsner category (It's third GABF medal!).
I'll write more about the 2012 GABF adventure soon, I just wanted to get our awards out there. It's been a dream come true winning these medals and everyone here at DB is super excited. In less than four years DB has won 17 GABF medals, 5 World Beer Cup Medals, the 2010 World Beer Cup Champion Small Brewpub & Brewmaster Award and the 2012 Great American Beer Festival Champion Small Brewpub & Brewmaster Award!
A big thanks to Pilot Brewer Aaron Reilly at Basecamp making it happen and the brew crew at Outpost of Nate, Corey, Josh, April for a job very well done.
