The Bruery Wins Gold at The 2016 Great American Beer Festival
(Orange County, CA) – At the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, gold, silver and bronze medals were awarded to winning breweries in 96 beer categories covering 161 different beer styles (including all subcategories), establishing the best examples of each style in the country.
Among the winning beers at this year’s competition were The Bruery’s Mischief which took home gold but Mischief is no stranger when it comes to awards:
2014 Los Angeles International Beer Competition – Gold Medal – American-Belgo Style Ale
2015 San Diego International Beer Festival – Gold Medal – Hybrid Belgian-Style Ale
2016 Los Angeles International Beer Competition – Honorable Mention – American-Belgo Style Ale
Mischief is a hoppy Belgian-style golden ale. This wickedly good golden ale is fiendishly dry-hopped with American hops to add a layer of complexity and mystery to its fruity, dry Belgian-style character. Citrus and resin diabolically combine with ripe melon, pear and slight peppery spice in a precariously effervescent mixture. Mischief is available year-round in 750 mL bottles and on draft in all of The Bruery’s distributed markets including 28 distributed states: AZ, CA, CO, CT, DC, FL, GA, HI, IL, IN, KY, LA, MD, MA, MI, NJ, NV, NY, NC, OH, OR, PA, RI, TX, VT, VA, WA, WI.
Founder/CEO Patrick Rue on bringing home a gold at this year’s event. “Winning a gold medal for Mischief is truly gratifying because I love this beer with my heart and soul. If I had to compare this to anything, it would be like your child bringing home a report card with straight A’s and a comment from the teacher telling you your child is a genius.”

ABOUT THE THE BRUERY & BRUERY TERREUX
The Bruery was founded in 2008 by Patrick Rue, now a Master Cicerone®, after he found homebrewing to be of greater interest than a career in law. Innovation has driven The Bruery to create one-of-a-kind barrel-aged, sour, and experimental beers since its inception. In 2015, The Bruery moved its sour beer production to the Bruery Terreux co-brand based in Anaheim, while The Bruery continues to craft non sour and spirit-barrel aged beers at its original site in Placentia. Rue’s award-winning beers range from high-ABV spirit barrel-aged specialties, like their coveted Black Tuesday®, to light and sessionable homages to historical styles, such as Hottenroth® Berliner Weisse.
