New York International Beer Competition (now in its 10th year) just awarded two Asheville breweries distinctive awards.

Bhramari Brewing took the honors for North Carolina Brewery of the Yearwhile Archetype Brewing was named North Carolina Belgian Style Brewery of the Year.

The competition is the “only international beer competition judged by real trade buyers”.  These judges include the retail store buyers, cicerones, sommeliers, restaurant beverage directors, hoteliers, distributors, and importers.

Bhramari also took the Double Gold for their “Fast Cars, Danger, Fire & Knives” in the German-Style Kölsch/Köln-Style Kölsch, $10 – Less category.

Bhramari Brewing can add these honors to their many awards which you can see by clicking here.

And once you feast your eyes upon all of the amazing beers found at Archetype, you may have a truly hard time deciding which one to try first.

Congratulations to both Bhramari Brewing and Archetype Brewing for representing the uncomparable Asheville flavor in the Big Apple!
