We took home the Gold!

O’so Brewing Wins Medal at the Great American Beer Festival®

GABF Gold medal is among the most coveted in the brewing world

Plover, Wisconsin • September 28, 2015— O’so Brewing Company claimed a gold medal at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) competition.

Presented by the Brewers Association, GABF is the largest national beer competition that recognizes the most outstanding beers produced in the United States. The top three winners in the competition’s 92 beer categories were announced September 26 at the Great American Beer Festival awards ceremony held at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.

We were recognized in the American-Style Wheat Beer with Yeast beer-style category for our Big O, a light refreshing wheat beer that has become popular among craft beer drinkers that enjoy other similar cloudy light beers.

The 2015 GABF competition winners were selected by an international panel of 242 expert judges from the record number of 6,647 entries, plus 91 Pro-Am entries, received from 1,552 U.S. breweries.

Our first GABF Gold medalist, don’t worry bud, you won’t be lonely long!

First GABF Gold Medal, but not the Last!

After almost 8 years of freestyle brewing and several strange brews later, this is refreshing validation. We make some “out there” beers sometimes, but we also have our core line of beers which contains a good variety and are all very tasty if I dare say myself. We know we are good at what we do, because we work very hard to be that good, but a gold medal sure does feel good! There were 8 medals received by Wisconsin breweries this year at GABF, but only one Gold. Check out all of the winners from this year’s GABF here. We are proud to say, our beer is delicious!

    I am a 4th year medical student in Illinois and I recently went to Wisconsin for an interview in Madison. While there I went to a local grocery and asked the grocer for his opinion on a good wheat beer. He quickly selected the Big O and said it was one of the best wheats he has ever had.
    After tasting this wonderful beer, I can honestly say that I now have a new favorite beer! My wife is also a 4th year medical student and will be interviewing in Madison next week. I will definitely have her get me a case of this awesome wheat beer to bring back to Illinois!
    I just wanted to you know that I think this is a wonderful product and to keep up the great work!

    • First, thanks so much for your feedback and sorry for the delay, we don’t have anyone full time taking care of the site, we all tag team it. I am glad you got to try the Big O and I am happy to know they suggested it!! O’so actually won the ONLY Gold in Wisconsin at the 2015 GABF in the American Wheat with yeast category for the Big O, so we are hoping that turns people on to it! I hope you guys have gotten jobs in Madison and am enjoying Wisconsin. Cheers, Katina
