Carson City’s Shoe Tree Brewing Co. takes home two Bronze Medals at U.S Open Beer Championship

Shoe Tree Brewing Co. won two Bronze Medals at the U.S Open Beer Championship held in Oxford, Ohio.

Breweries from all over the world submitted more than 7,000 beers representing more than 130 different styles for the 2019 U.S. Open Beer Championship. The competition is the only one to include beers from professional breweries and award-winning home-brewers, with judges from England, Canada and the United States.

Shoe Tree Brewing Co. took home Bronze medals for their Rice Street Lager in the American Lager/Pilsner category and Muscle Power Pale Ale in the American Strong Pale Ale category.

Rice Street Lager is a classic American lager brewed to be clean and crisp, and Muscle Power Pale Ale is a Pale Ale featuring notes of citrus and melon.

Shoe Tree Brewing Co. is a 7 barrel Micro Brewery, located at 1496 Old Hot Springs Road, that specializes in a wide variety of beers including both unique and traditional brews.

“It’s a honor to win these medals, we strive to provide world class beer for our community and it feels great to have that effort recognized.” said Jeff Young, Brew Master, Owner at Shoe Tree Brewing Co.

Judging in the U.S. Open Beer Championships is blind; the judges know only the categories, but they do not know what beers they are tasting. The final round of judging was held at the Grandfather’s Barn in Oxford, Ohio.
