Loowit Brewing Company was awarded a silver award in the Rye beer style category for its Grimlock Rye Porter, an American Porter featuring dark malts that provide pleasant flavors of chocolate, toffee, coffee and toast. The addition of Rye malt builds the complexity of the malt profile by adding a touch of rye spiciness to the finish. Loowit Brewing Company is a 10-bbl microbrewery located in Vancouver, Washington, USA that specializes in crafting unique, high quality beers.
“We are so very proud and excited to bring this award home to our fans in Vancouver, WA. Recognition for excellence at such a prestigious event like the World Beer Cup is great for drawing attention to the burgeoning beer scene that has rooted and is growing in southwest Washington. It’s not every day a small brewery gets acknowledged on the world stage in such a highly competitive competition.” said Devon Bray, Co-Owner of Loowit Brewing Company.
