McGarvey's Scottish Ale Wins Prestigious Brewing Honor
SAN CLEMENTE, Calif., Oct. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Oggi's Sports|Brewhouse|Pizza received a silver medal at the 2017 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition. Presented by the Brewers Association, GABF is the largest commercial beer competition in the world and recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States. The top three winners in the competition's 98 beer-style categories were announced at the recent Great American Beer Festival awards ceremony held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.
"When I received the news of our McGarvey's Scottish Ale earning a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival this year, I was overwhelmed with excitement," said Vice President of Oggi's Sports|Brewhouse|Pizza, Estella Ferrera. "Being one of the founding breweries in the San Diego market back in 1995, the birthplace of the craft beer movement, and now proudly brewing in San Clemente, we have earned over 50 medals in international, national, and local competitions. After all of these years of brewing, we continue to be honored with medals like this confirming that Oggi's makes great beer that can be enjoyed in all of our restaurants!"
McGarvey's Scottish Ale is a rich, malty Scottish-style export ale brewed with small amounts of dark grains for color and flavor. By mashing it at a higher temperature the beer receives a hint of sweetness. A small amount of hops are used to keep the bitterness low. The GABF silver medal is the latest in a series of major awards for the brew including a Bronze Medal 2011 San Diego International Beer Competition; Bronze Medal 2011 L.A. County Fair; Gold Medal 2008 World Beer Cup; Gold Medal 2004 L.A. County Fair; and a Silver Medal 2007 San Diego Fair.
