And the 2015 Honey Beer Champion Is…


The National Honey Board just wrapped up its first-ever Honey Beer Competition and crowned Rogue Ales’ Honey Kolsch the Best in Show champion.

More than 25 beers were submitted for the competition. Each beer was judged by three members of the Beer Judge Certification Program based on aroma, appearance, flavor, mouthfeel, and contribution of honey to the overall flavor of the beer.

The Honey Kolsch was brewed with wildflower honey and alluvial hops. Other winners included the Luminosity Lager, from St. Patrick’s Brewing Company in Littleton, Colorado, which used seven hop varieties and took home the Gold in Best Honey Lager, and the Ron and the Beast Ryan, from Evil Twin Brewing in Brooklyn, New York—a saison made with Brettanomyces yeast.
