Urban South Brewery Wins Big at U.S. Beer Open Championships
(New Orleans, LA) – New Orleans’ based Urban South Brewery scored two silver medals in the 2019 U.S. Beer Open Championships. The perennial-favorite Lime Cucumber Gose placed second in the vegetable beer category, while the company’s popular Carpé Rose secured the runner-up in the Near-Gluten Free Beer category.
