PETER B’S BREWPUB WINS SILVER AT THE WORLD BEER CHAMPIONSHIPS FOR “SUM OF HOURS” IMPERIAL RED

Monterey, CA – September 30, 2015 Peter B’s Brewpub, located behind the Portola Hotel and Spa, has been awarded a Silver Medal at the World Beer Championships. Based on a scale of 1-100 points, Peter B’s “Sum of Hours” Imperial Red earned 88 points.

The Beverage Tasting Institute (BTI) describes Peter B’s “Sum of Hours” Imperial Red as having brilliant, deep, amber color with lively, attractive aromas of frosted banana cake and flan with a soft, bright, effervescent, fruity sweet medium to full body and a warming, complex, medium long pepper bread, honey cream, dried fruits, and radicchio finish. It is a very tasty and attractive barrel-aged lager that is sure to please.

“We received freshly emptied whiskey barrels and we were trying to figure out what would be the best first run in these barrels. We figured an Imperial Red with all the caramel notes and abv would complement the tart oak whisky. Boy were we right the beer turned out amazing.” Said Kevin Clark, Peter B’s Head Brewer

Peter B’s Brewpub has earned several other awards from the BTI’s World Beer Championships. A few recent awards include:

  • 2015 Gold Medal for Midnight Lighting
  • 2015 Gold Medal for Je T’Aime
  • 2014 Gold Medal for Peter B’s Citra IPA
  • 2014 Silver Medal for Belgian Wit
