Karl Strauss Rakes in Six Medals
Karl Strauss Brewing Company is giving new meaning to the phrase “Golden Years.” The company is celebrating their 20th Anniversary with winning six brewing medals, including two Gold Medals at the Los Angeles County Fair. It’s fitting that in their 20th year in the craft beer industry, Karl Strauss would find success with the beer that started it all, as well as with one of their edgier specialties. “Karl Strauss Amber Lager has always been a favorite because it’s an extremely flavorful, session beer. As a brewer, it’s cool to see the trend of bigger beers gaining a following and I think our Conquistador delivers,” says Brewmaster Paul Segura.
In addition to taking home two Gold’s at the LA Fair, the company was also awarded a Silver medal for Woodie Gold and a Bronze medal for their Red Trolley Ale. In San Diego, Karl Strauss won Silver in the Amber Hybrid category for their Red Trolley Ale and Bronze for their Amber Lager. “There are some great breweries competing at the LA and San Diego Fairs and to medal with that kind of competition is awesome,” says Segura.
