More Accolades for Cutthroat

Congrats to Uinta Brewing on receiving a Silver Medal in the English-Style Bitter category for their Cutthroat Pale Ale at the The sixth annual European Beer Star Awards.

836 beers from more than 30 countries participated in the European Beer Star. 78 jurors awarded gold, silver and bronze medals in 41 categories.

Record attendance, was spurred on by a surge of foreign entries, which was 22% higher than the previous year. Submissions came from all continents: from Australia to Panama, from Russia to Thailand, from Brazil to the USA.

Uinta's Flagship beer is one of the most celebrated beers in the state. Sadly people from outside of Utah will only get to experience this great beer from within our borders. Due to some bullshit copyright laws. Oh well, more for us I guess.

Cheers

What's the deal with the copyright BS? I left state a few years ago and that beer is one of the few things food wise that I really miss. I'd probably pay triple what its worth to get a case shipped every now and then.

Saw your comment at Beer Rant. If you're dying for Nogne O Winter Ale and I can find more, I'd be willing to ship you a bottle from Ariz. Say the word and I'll go have another look at the local outlets...I needs me some too!

(Feel free to delete this comment as off topic...I just couldn't figure out a quicker way to reach you regarding the Nogne.)

I get it in Colorado but it is renamed as Angler's instead of Cutthroat. Great beer!

Mikey said...

Hey Scott, even though the labels may look similar Cutthroat and Anglers are two entirly different beers.
Cheers.
