Rye River prize haul from Alltech Craft Brews and Food Fair

The dust has settled after the Alltech Craft Brews and Food Fair and we are able to take a moment to appreciate the prizes Rye River Brewing won! We are very proud that we entered fourteen beers and took home sixteen awards. Our Gold McGargles Double Bangin’ IPA and the Crafty Brewing Company American Style Pale Wheat Ale both beat off stiff competition from home and abroad to take home Gold and Best in Category. It’s the second consecutive year that we have entered the best IPA into the competition as you’ll remember our Big Bangin’ IPA won the overall prize last year at the Alltech Dublin Craft Beer Cup. Here’s a breakdown of the winners:
