Old Rasputin Wins Gold At Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival
North Coast Brewing’s Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout won Gold at the 2012 Stockholm Beer & Whisky Festival.
The international event, in its 21st year, took place over two weekends in September and October, and saw a record number of more than 1,500 beer entries, from which Rasputin stood out, placing at the top of the Porter/Stout 6% och over category.
Old Rasputin Russian Imperial Stout is produced in the tradition of the 18th Century English brewers who supplied the court of Russia’s Catherine the Great. This ground-breaking beer seems to develop a cult following wherever it goes. It’s a rich, intense brew with big complex flavors and a warming finish. We’re gratified that the judges in Stockholm agree.
