We got in touch with Bristol Brewing Company founder/brewer Mike Bristol, who had this to say about his brewery's turnout:
“We’re always excited to win [World Beer Cup awards]. We’ve won some in the past… and it’s always an honor to be recognized by peers and beer judges. Our business is all about our fans… If I had a choice, I’d have the fans love the beer, but we get both!”

The World Beer Cup
is over, and Colorado has come away with a sizable share of awards — including three for Springs breweries. Bristol Brewing Company's
Beehive honey wheat took home a silver medal in the American-style wheat beer with yeast category. Cerberus Brewing Company's
NBD Kölsch took home a bronze medal in the German-style Kölsch category. And Cogstone Brewing Company's
beet cream ale took home a bronze in the field beer category.
“It means a lot," says Cogstone brewer/co-owner Robert Hemphill. "That beer was special for me, and I worked really hard to get it that way.”
Cerberus assistant brewer Taylor Donner says he's "super stoked that our hard work paid off. NBD is easily one of my go-to beers at the brewery, and it's rad to see that it can do so well on an international level."
