Local Brewery Wins a Great American Beer Award

Posted: Updated:
RICHLAND, WA - A local brewery has earned a gold medal for one of its beers.

White Bluffs Brewing in Richland made its first appearance at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver last weekend.

Their Red Alt beer won gold in the German Altbiet category beating out more than 750 other breweries from around the US.

"I tasted a lot of alt beers during that festival and I kept thinking, I like mine better. but then you see the bronze go up and you just want your name up there anyways. Then silver went up and its like, oh boy. Then the gold, we got it and our little team that was there got really excited." said Mike Sutherland.

White Bluffs Brewing is a seven-barrel brewery with a tap room where Red Alt is on tap right now.
