Local Breweries Bring Home National Honors

I wonder what it means when I find more interesting and relevant food news in the Indianapolis Business Journal than any other local news outlet. I'm not going to question. In the meantime, the IBJ Daily reports Brugge Brasserie, Oaken Barrel Brewing Company, and Ram Brewery won two silver medals and a bronze at the Great American Beer Festival. It's good to see Brugge continuing to brew great beer -- because their service and unpolished front-of-house manners have kept me away. (Oh, now, if you can't say something nice don't say anything...yes, well. I always sucked at that.) From IBJ Daily:

Beers from three local brew pubs claimed silver and bronze medals at the 2005 Great American Beer Festival Competition in Denver, a national contest of more than 2,300 beers in 69 categories. Broad Ripple's Brugge Brasserie brewery took a silver medal for its Tripel de Ripple in the Belgian Abbey Ale category. In the Belgian Wheat category, Oaken Barrel Brewing Co. in Greenwood won a silver medal for its Alabaster Wit. And a bronze medal was given to the downtown Indianapolis Ram Brewery of Washington-based Big Horn Brewing Co. for its Detonator Doppelbock.
