The Covey Restaurant and Brewery Brings Home Six Awards from
the 2010 Los Angeles International Commercial Beer Competition
(Fort Worth, Texas) – Brewmaster Jamie Fulton continues his streak for award-winning craft beer at the 2010 Los Angeles International Commercial Beer Competition held recently, bringing home six awards to Fort Worth including two gold, two silver, and two bronze medals for his hand-crafted beer.
Mr. Fulton entered eight beers into the competition last month, six of which were awarded medals. The Covey’s Texas Blonde and Aduro Porter scored gold medals in the German-Style Kölsch/Köln-Style Kölsch and Coffee Flavored Beer categories, respectively. Silver medal winners in the Vienna-Style Lager and Imperial/Double Red Ale categories were The Covey’s Vienna Lager and Fritz Reserve Imperial Amber. Bronze medals went to The Covey’s Flemish Pale in the Belgian and French-Style Ale category and to “100” in the Belgian-Style Strong Ale category.
“It’s incredibly rewarding to receive accolades for The Covey’s hand-crafted brews,” said Mr. Fulton. “I am especially proud of the silver medal awarded to Fritz Reserve Imperial Amber, which I brewed this year in honor of the birth of my second son, Fritz Patrick Fulton.”
To achieve variety with his brews, Mr. Fulton frequently rotates his fresh brews in the restaurant. The award-winning Texas Blonde, Vienna Lager, Aduro Porter, and Fritz Reserve Imperial Amber are currently on tap at The Covey. “100”, although not currently on tap, will return in the near future along with several other new Covey brews.
Organized and run by the L.A. County Fair, the Los Angeles International Commercial Beer Competition is registered with the Beer Judge Certification Program. In closed sessions with a panel of at least three judges, beers are compared in blind tastings against others of similar style, as defined by Brewers Association style guidelines. The competition is open to any licensed brewery or brewpub, and all beers entered are required to be available for sale to the general public. The public is able to taste winning beers during the L.A. County Fair September 4, 2010 through October 3, 2010.
