WINSTON-SALEM, NC, July 9, 2019– Wise Man Brewing was named a Top 10 brewery and was awarded four medals at the 2019 U.S. Open Beer Championship, a major beer competition based in Oxford, Ohio.

Triad-Based Craft Brewer, Wise Man, Wins 4 Medals, including Gold for “Merry World”
For the second straight year, Wise Man received a Gold Medal for its Bourbon Barrel-Aged “Merry World,” a breakfast stout brewed with Krankies coffee and Black Mountain cocoa nibs and aged for six months in bourbon barrels. The judges also awarded Wise Man with a Silver Medal for “Outraged Daughters” Irish Red Ale and Bronze Medals for “Spring Veil” Maibock and Port Barrel-Aged “Hell’s Company” Russian Imperial Stout. Wise Man was also declared a “Top 10” brewery out of the hundreds that competed.
“We are humbled by this recognition but also so proud of our outstanding brew team,” said Sam Victory, brewmaster and one of Wise Man’s three founders. “To win four medals at this prestigious competition is significant enough, but to finish in the Top 10 in the world out of so many excellent breweries is truly an honor.”
Wise Man has received numerous awards since opening in January of 2017, including two medals in the 2018 U.S. Open Beer Championship, but this marks the first time the brewery has been recognized as one of the top breweries in the world in a global competition.
