Grand Teton Brewing Company Wins at Great American Beer Festival

In its 20th year, Grand Teton Brewing Company, known throughout the West for their exceptional microbrews, has won another medal with their legendary Bitch Creek ESB. At this year’s prestigious Great American Beer Festival, Bitch Creek found itself in familiar territory, once again standing on the podium, this time with a silver medal in the American Brown Ale category.

Over the last few years, Bitch Creek ESB has become dominant at the highest level of beer competitions. This spring it won a medal at the World Beer Cup in only its 2nd appearance. During this summer’s North American Beer Awards, it repeated last year’s Gold Medal performance. This makes for five medals in five years at the NABA. At the Great American Beer Festival, this year’s win represents four medals in five years, including two Gold Medals. To win consistently at this level requires a truly superior brew.

Bitch Creek ESB perfectly balances big malt sweetness and robust hop flavor for a full-bodied, satisfying mahogany ale. Like the creek for which it’s named, Bitch Creek ESB is complex, full of character and not for the timid.

The success of Bitch Creek has not gone unnoticed. Record numbers of beer drinkers have been calling, visiting and emailing the brewery wanting more distribution. Many have gotten their wish fulfilled this year! This summer alone Grand Teton Brewing Co. has added distributors in New York, Idaho, Wisconsin, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Missouri and Kansas. Grand Teton Brewing has even released a Double Bitch Creek in its renowned Cellar Reserve Series of beers.
