Beachwood also received three medals — GOLD for Mocha Machine in the Coffee Beer category (which took home a bronze medal in 2014), SILVER for Kilgore in the American Stout category and a BRONZE for Udder Love in the Sweet Stout category. Beachwood BBQ & Brewing’s Co-Owner Gabe Gordon, Brewmaster and Co-Owner Julian Shrago along with Assistant Brewers Ian McCall and Gene Wagoneer share this win with Beachwood staff and supporters!

“We are so thrilled to be recognized with such prestigious awards at the World Beer Cup. It is truly an honor to share this award with our insanely talented brewers, hard-working staff, unwavering fans, as well as all of our close friends and fellow award recipients in the Southern California craft beer community,” said co-owner Julian Shrago

The 2016 World Beer Cup— referred to as “The Olympics of Beer”—featured nearly 6,600 entries from 1,907 breweries from 55 different Countries attempting brewing glory. The Brewers Association—the not-for-profit trade group dedicated to promoting and protecting America’s small and independent craft brewers—announced the awards at the conclusion of Craft Brewers Conference & BrewExpo America® in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on May 6th.

“We continue to advocate the values of independently operated, locally made, community driven craft beer. These awards speak volumes to the commitment we have to exceptional products, to the staff who everyday exemplify our commitment and the patrons who supported us when we started this journey,” says co-owner Gabe Gordon.
