BrewDad commentary – I have been saying this for quite some time. Reuben’s in my humble opinion is one of the best brewers in the Pacific NW Region.  Adam and his crew are brewing up some terrific beers.    I am so ever proud to see this happen to such a great brewery.

SEATTLE, Wash. (July 7, 2014)  Reuben’s Brews came out a winner at the 2014 U.S. Open Beer Championship. The Ballard brewery tied for 4th place on the list of “Top 10 Breweries 2014” and was awarded four medals – gold for the Roggenbier, silver for the American Brown and Auld Heritage, and bronze for the Dry Irish Stout. This is Reuben’s second Top 10 finish in the competition in as many years. In 2013, they placed 6th.

The U.S. Open Beer Championship is one of the biggest brewery competitions in the world and the only one to include both professional breweries and award-winning home-brewers. This year, entries in the highly regarded competition included more than 3,000 beers from 300 breweries in 20 different countries.

“We were very excited to hear how well we did this year,” says Reuben’s Brews co-founder and head brewer Adam Robbings. “It’s fantastic to be recognized in such a large competition with so many great breweries. We’ve won some nice recognition so far, but this is definitely the highlight!”

Reuben’s Brews was the only Washington brewery to make the Top 10. Grand National Champion honors went to Wormtown Brewery in Worcester, Mass. Stone Brewery from Escondido, Calif. and Deschutes Brewery from Bend, Ore. tied for second.
