What Award Did This Beer Win?
The limited-release BJ’s Coffee Blonde had the #GABF judges buzzing when they awarded BJ’s with the Bronze Medal in the Coffee Beer category! Cheers to Head Brewer Joe Baldwin for brewing this award winner in their Reno brewery, and to their innovative brewing team on yet another win at the Great American Beer Festival.
How The Collaboration Came To Be
CULT has worked with BJ’s Brewhouse for many years supplying them with coffee and tea’s across a multitude of different locations. When it was time to create a coffee beer for the category to be judged they already knew exactly who to approach on the coffee side, none other than Arizona’s largest coffee roaster and tea supplier, CULT Artisan Beverage Co.
The innovative team at CULT loves challenges and were very excited when this opportunity came about. They got to work right away brainstorming on what the best roast was going to be to create a unique but amazing combination with a beer. Little did they know they were going to hit the nail on the head & help BJ’s Brewhouse win a bronze medal at the Great American Beer Festival.
