EXCELSIOR—January 22, 2015—Local craft brewery Excelsior Brewing Company has tapped another achievement in a young but successful break-out to the Minnesota brewing scene. The Beverage Tasting Institute and celebrated beer and beverage rating publication tastings.com has awarded two Gold Awards and a Platinum Award to three of Excelsior’s newest beer offerings.
In the rating team’s bi-monthly new beer roundup, three Excelsior brews were put under the glass, and all three received stellar reviews. The RowBust Porter received a Gold Award with a 91/100 rating. The Smoke on the Porter also received a Gold Award with a 95/100. And the brewery’s recent ‘Spresso Milk Stout, a robust and smooth coffee-milk-stout, received a rare Platinum Award, with an impressive 98/100 score.
The recent accolades join a number of previous awards and celebrations for Excelsior Brewing Company, and its brewing team led by Head Brewer Niles Lewin.
