Prost! Bear Chase Brewing Company’s Kodiak Kölsch has done it again! Last month, the German-style Kölsch earned a bronze medal at the
Virginia Craft Beer Cup Competition, which is the Virginia Craft Brewer’s Guild’s premier event of the year and the largest state competition of its kind in the United States.
This is not the first time this varietal has been recognized…Kodiak Kölsch took home a silver medal last year at this same competition, and in the 2020 it earned a silver medal at the Great American Beer Fest in Denver.
Kodiak Kölsch is not Bear Chase’s only award-winning beer. The brewery’s Oktoberfest won a Gold Medal in both 2019 and 2021 at the Great American Beer Festival. This traditional German-style Marzen lager is malt-forward but very well balanced, smooth and drinkable.
Want to try them for yourself? Bear Chase Brewing Company makes Kodiak Kölsch year-round, and while we certainly encourage you to come enjoy it at our venue, you also can find it served at local restaurants around Virginia. Oktoberfest is brewed each fall and is now being served on property. Come on out to the mountain and enjoy award-winning beers with friends and family this fall!
