Shannon Chocolate Stout Wins Gold Medal at U.S. Open Beer Championships, One Year Anniversary Coming Up

Jul 27, 2015 04:25PM ● Published by Kevin

Shannon Brewery celebrates two big wins in its inaugural year, with a Gold Medal at the U.S. Open Beer Championships for its Chocolate Stout. The brewery also won a Silver Medal for the Irish Red at the Commonwealth Cup, which is an international brewing competition.

Brewmaster Shannon Carter of Shannon Brewery in Keller.

 According to its website, "Shannon Chocolate Stout is exactly what the name suggests—a rich, subtly sweet, lightly hopped ale — satisfying and perfectly balanced. Our milk stout is brewed to have a deeper, almost black hue that surprises the drinker with its wonderful chocolate aroma, a slightly sweet first taste and a complex rewarding finish. Our fire-brewed process delicately caramelizes the sugars in the dark wort and accentuates the malty flavors in the roasted barley and chocolate malts. The addition of raw cocoa nibs during fermentation impart subtle chocolaty aromas that make this stout a year-round treat.

"Shannon Irish Red has a beautiful deep copper hue associated with fine Crystal Malts. This ale also has a wonderful malty start, a gentle hop aroma and crisp clean finish. Our red ale has aromatic hints of baking raisin bread — satisfying and perfectly balanced. Shannon Irish Red is our nod to Saint Patrick, the most recognized patron saint of Ireland. Just in case you are curious, we will NEVER brew a green beer."

This all comes as Shannon Carter's Keller-based company ramps up to celebrate its One Year Anniversary on Aug. 29 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The brewery will have special beers from its first year of production and some new ones for people try out. Food trucks include Hick’s BBQ, FnG Eats and Steel City Popsicles. The Robert Gotcher Band and The Tom Loris Band will be on hand to perform music, starting at 3 p.m.

Union Growler Co. will sell growlers so you can take home your favorite brew.

Presale tickets are available on Eventbrite for $15, and it will be $18 dollars at the door. That will include a Shannon Brewing Company One Year Anniversary pint glass, 3 pints of your choosing, and a new Shannon can koozie.

One Year Anniversary glassware and koozies are limited, so come early and stay late.
