So, I think it's time. I did the actual count and it works out to four medals in respected international judging against commercial craft brewers from all over the world, awarded to beers I have designed.

At the risk of appearing egotistical, I'm going to run down the list (up to September 25th 2015) of commercially released beers, and the awards and distinctions associated with beers that I have designed. Some were architected by Beancurdturtle Brewing LLC then brewed as collaborations with commercial breweries in Spain. Some are designed and brewed by my very own little self - and served in the tasting room - at the BCT Brewing Project in Riverside California.

Collaborations:
Valencia Saison - Saison. A collaboration brewed in Spain by Premium Beers from Spain (available in the US)
29 Daniel - Wine barrel aged Porter. A collaboration brewed and barrel aged in Spain by Mateo & Bernabé and Friends (available in the US)

I think this is now the fifth time a commercially released beer I architected has been awarded a medal in international competition. I'm starting to think that I should start keeping an official count, and that  I may be a pretty good brewer.

This last medal is from the World Beer Awards. Daniel 29, a collaboration between Beancurdturtle Brewing LLC and Mateo & Bernabé & Friends, was awarded a Bronze Medal. And this isn't some obscure non-event competition. There's some horsepower behind the competition, and the competitors.

The World Beer Awards is a truly international competition with commercially released beers from the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa – basically all over the world. We're quite pleased to share this honor with Mateo & Bernabé.

Don't forget, I'm also brewing small batch at the BCT Brewing Project brewery and tasting room. So come on out and try some beers I am making.
