Boiler Brewing of Lincoln, Nebraska Brewing of LaVista/Papillion, and Scratchtown Brewing of Ord were all medal winners this past week at the 2016 U.S. Open Beer Championship. Nearly 5,000 entries were judged at this international competition with the final round of judging taking place in Oxford, Ohio.
Having only been open to the public since April 1 of this year, the first two medals won by Boiler Brewing as a commercial brewery is quite an impressive feat. Nebraska Brewing is no stranger to this event, having medaled at the U.S. Beer Open in multiple categories in all eight years this competition has existed. Scratchtown Brewing medals for the same beer, Black Eye Imperial Porter, for the second consecutive year.
Congratulations to all three breweries!
