World Beer Championships Awards Silver Medal To ‘Sum Of Hours’ Imperial Red
A beer with carmel notes in an oak whiskey barrel wooed the judges at the World Beer Championships and has earned another award for Peter B’s Brewpub in Monterey, CA.
Peter B’s “Sum of Hours” Imperial Red earned 88 of a possible 100 points and won a Silver Medal at the World Beer Championships in September.
“We received freshly emptied whiskey barrels and we were trying to figure out what would be the best first run in these barrels,” said Kevin Clark, Peter B’s Head Brewer. “We figured an Imperial Red with all the caramel notes and abv would compliment the tart oak whisky.
“Boy were we right; the beer turned out amazing.”
The Beverage Tasting Institute (BTI) described Peter B’s beer as having” brilliant, deep, amber color with lively, attractive aromas of frosted banana cake and flan with a soft, bright, effervescent, fruity sweet medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, medium-long pepper bread, honey cream, dried fruits, and radicchio finish.
“It is a very tasty and attractive barrel aged lager that is sure to please.”
Located behind the Portola Hotel and in front of Fisherman’s Wharf, Peter B’s is a highly popular craft beer bar and excellent restaurant. Locals love it as a place to eat, as a hangout, as a comfortable spot to watch sports and to sit out by the fire pits on the patio.
Peter B’s has won several awards from the BTI’s World Beer Championships, most recently the following:
• 2015 Gold Medal for Midnight Lighting
• 2015 Gold Medal for Je T’Aime
• 2014 Gold Medal for Peter B’s Citra IPA
• 2014 Silver Medal for Belgian Wit
