Award-Winning Brewery Restaurant Brings Back Great American Beer Festival Favorite
Gordon Biersch is ready to help beer enthusiasts in search of a bold yet refreshing flavor with Belgian IPA, available for a limited-time at participating restaurants across the country.
Now through August 30 guests can enjoy Gordon Biersch’s Belgian IPA beer, a perfect marriage between a traditional Belgian Strong Gold and an American IPA with bright, tropical and citrus fruit characters from six different hops united with classic Belgian yeast. Last year, Gordon Biersch Rockville, Md. entered this unique brew at the Great American Beer Festival® and won a Silver Medal in the American-Belgo-Style Ale category.
“Coming off of last year’s win at The Great American Beer Festival, we’re proud to offer our guests the Belgian IPA and give them the opportunity to taste this citrus-packed brew,” said Stan Frankenthaler, Chief Officer of Food, Beverage and Strategic Supply for CraftWorks Restaurants & Breweries, Inc. “With this Silver recognition, we continue to lead in the brewing category and aim to continue providing our guests with the highest quality handcrafted beers.”
Earlier this year, Gordon Biersch unveiled its new, chef-driven menu, featuring made-from-scratch, seasonal recipes across the brand’s food, beer and cocktail offerings. Additionally, the restaurant chain began offering a wider variety of beers while staying true to the traditional brewing methods of the Reinheitsgebot or German Beer Purity Law; a wine list comprised of well-known producers from top growing regions around the world; and a fun cocktail menu focused on the classics.
Gordon Biersch is an upscale casual restaurant specializing in local brewing and handcrafted, seasonal foods. Over the years, Gordon Biersch has won many medals for our authentic lagers and ales, which are brewed in-house using traditional methods dating back nearly 500 years. Most recently, the brand won a Silver Medal for its newest beer – a Belgian IPA at the Great American Beer Festival.
