NEWS – 2015 U.S. Open Beer Championship Winners Announced

2015 U.S. Open Beer Championship Winners Announced

The 2015 U.S. Open Beer Championship winners were recently announced.  Not Mauisurprisingly, the U.S. Open Beer Championship focuses on alcoholic beverages.  Of the 90 drink classes represented in the championship, only two are non-alcoholic, root beer and non-alcoholic beer.  Although not the main focus of the competition, we at Root Beer Respect are concerned only with the results from the root beer category.  Who took the root beer honors this year?

First place went to Island Root Beer from Maui Brewing out of Hawaii.  root-beer

Canadian root beer Babbling Brooke’s Root Beer form Nickel Brook Brewing took second place.

Finally, Point Premium Root Beer from Stevens Point Brewery out of Wisconsin took the bronze.R-POI-3

Unfortunately, I have not yet had any of these root beer award winners, although Point Premium is in my queue.  It looks like Island Root Beer is only available in cans, but I will be looking to get my hands, and lips, on each of these championship root beers.  All of the 2015 U.S. Open Beer Championship results can be found here  .
