The Maine Beer news reader is beginning to sound a bit like a broken record – the medals just keep on comin’ for the Shipyard Brewing Co. (and sister brewery Sea Dog). Each brewery took home a medal at the 2008 Australian International Beer Awards (AIBA) in Melbourne, Australia this past weekend.
To put it in a bit more context for those of us on the other side of the globe: 1,084 entries to the AIBA were received from 42 countries, so for both Shipyard and Sea Dog to take home awards (or for either to, for that matter) is pretty impressive. Shipyard Brewing Company’s Chamberlain Pale Ale won a Silver award in Class 3 – Ale, Packaged – British Style Pale Ale (no Gold was given in this category). Last year, Chamberlain took home a Bronze medal in this same category.
Sea Dog Brewing Company’s Sea Dog Bluepaw Wild Blueberry Wheat Ale was awarded a Bronze in Class 17 – Fruit Beer, Packaged (no Silver or Gold was given in this category). Bluepaw received this same award in last year’s competition.
