Miami, FL – Wynwood Brewing Company has just won top honors in the Robust Porter category for its Pop’s Porter beer at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. The WBCo., which just celebrated one year since starting production, is the first production craft brewery in the City of Miami. The Great American Beer Festival is the most prestigious competition and largest festival for American produced beers in the United States. The award ceremony was held this afternoon, October 4th in Denver, CO.
The WBCo’s Pop’s Porter recognition is the only Gold Medal given to a beer in the state of Florida.
