WOODINVILLE, Wash.--(Redhook made some noise this month at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, bringing home medals for two of his beers. Overcoming steep competition—including a total of 4,338 entries from 666 breweries across 48 states, Washington, D.C., and Guam—Redhook Pilsner received a silver medal in the American-Style or International-Style Pilsener category, and Winterhook took home the bronze in the American-Style Amber/Red Ale category.)--
“We’re really proud of these two beers in addition to our other core, seasonal and limited-release brews”
“We’re really proud of these two beers in addition to our other core, seasonal and limited-release brews,” said Redhook brewmaster Jen Talley. “I love lagers, so I’m stoked to see Pilsner get the recognition it deserves. I’m really happy with how this year’s Winterhook recipe turned out. We tweak the recipe just a little each year and are excited that this one was recognized by the GABF judges as one of the best in a really competitive category.”
Redhook Pilsner was first brewed in 2010 as a session beer modeled after the historic European lagers and is currently available in 12-ounce bottles and on draught nationwide. Winterhook has been brewed every year since 1985 and changes slightly with each release. This year’s winter seasonal is generously hopped and balanced with caramel and malts; it will be available through January in 12- and 22-ounce bottles and on draught across the U.S. Locations selling the award-winning brews can be found using Redhook’s beer finder at redhook.com/find-beer/.
Redhook was born out of the energy and spirit of the early ‘80s in the heart of Seattle. While the term didn’t exist at the time, Redhook became one of America’s first “craft” breweries. From a modest start in a former transmission shop in the Seattle neighborhood of Ballard, to the current breweries in Woodinville, Wash., and Portsmouth, N.H., Redhook has become one of America’s most recognized craft breweries. While Redhook has “grown up” during the past 30 years, one thing has never changed – it’s still brewing great beers like ESB, Long Hammer IPA, Pilsner, Copperhook and a variety of seasonal brews. Most importantly, Redhook makes sure he has fun doing it. Redhook's beers are available on tap and in bottles, and are available in markets across the country.
